My name is Lawrence. I have been exposed to bad tea most of my life until I discover good quality teas which have good balance energy and envoke warm emotions. 

Fine tea, in particular aged Pu Erh, is extremely effective in expanding consciousness. It is tremendously beneficial for the body as well -- more than any other variety -- but in this context we are approaching our tea as a meditation aid/vehicle. 

My goal for the group, is to bring something of this ancient mystical practice to the West, and to offer an opportunity to share in a tradition that stretches back thousands of years. The process of tea brewing, at its best, is highly transformative and highly beneficial for health and wellbeing in general.
