Discovering TEA in TEAM

Feel like you could use a deeper connection with an important client?

Or reconnect with a scattered team?

Experts say trying new things together is one of the best ways to deepen team relationships. That was the thinking behind our "Discovering Tea in Team" experience.

 

A Northeast Tea House tea ceremony, using Zoom or other, will fascinate and engage you and your colleagues. Each participant 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.

Gongfu Experience

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.
