Sitting on the cushions on the floor we appreciate exceptional artisan tea in a mindful and ritualistic manner inspired by Dao and Zen meditation practices.
Teas that come from the trees growing in the wild or from natural farming, brewed and tasted in a special set and setting, offer unforgettable sensory experience with a profound feeling of peace, simple joy and natural magic.
We drink tea slowly and mindfully to be fully present to all our senses of smell, taste, touch, vision and sound, to experience the actual moment of "here" and "now", and to find beauty and grace in small things.
After tea meditation we move to DIY part of the workshop where we learn about different types of tea (japanese or chinese green, pu-erh, various oolongs etc), ways of preparing them, utensils and how to create a tea ceremony setting. Each workshop will be dedicated to one type of tea, and we will be tasting one or two teas depending on a chosen tea of the day.
