TEA TIME FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

Feel like you you need a way to connect with scattered friends and family you haven't seen

anywhere but Zoom lately?

Searching for a new experience to share with those you care about?

Each member of the group receives a kit to keep for personal use, containing everything needed to engage with the teacher and to dive into tea culture. Options include the meditative and calming traditional Gongfu tea preparation or an exploration of the sensation called Matcha, the renowned Japanese ceremonial tea known for energizing health benefits.
