Each participant receives everything needed to prepare tea in the traditional gongfu method. The group is led via Zoom (or other) by Northeast Tea House founder and Head Tea Guy, Simon Parish, who will provide an explanation of the differences among teas, highlighting the tea selected for the group, a discussion of the intersection of tea culture and meditation, and a lesson on gongfu tea preparation and tasting, with a focus on how flavors change and flow with each new steeping.
