Evening GABA Tea

  • Sep 11, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Come sit, share a bowl and relax with us as we share some wonderful oolong GABA tea with you.  

Hi everybody, we are looking forward to seeing you all tonight! We will begin at 7:15 so that we can give people a chance to get here and settle in. The location for tonights event is: 583 Venice Blvd., the Northwest Corner of Venice and Abbott Kinney. There should be plenty of parking available on Venice.

It is a private residence and it has a white picket fence with a yellow wall and white door behind, the door will be propped open. Our home is set up for floor seating and we have cushions, but feel free to bring whatever you need to be comfortable.

GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid) is a naturally occurring inhibitory neurotransmitter that produces an enhanced calming effect. This type of tea is typically served in evening ceremony to encourage relaxation and sleep.  Our ceremony is rooted in traditional Chinese tea practice and incorporates elements of meditation and Tao. 


As part of this Los Angeles Tea Ceremony group, all donations from this event go towards establishing a local tea and meditation center for all to enjoy. 

Contribute through Paypal at [masked] or in person at the event.

This event is at a private residence, so space is limited. Address will be provided to those that RSVP on the day of the event. 

There is an RSVP/wait list in place, so your early contribution will ensure a seat in the tea room. Please arrive as close to the start time as you can so we can all settle in together. We provide traditional floor seating and have plenty of cushions. Comfortable clothing is recommended. 

We look forward to sharing a bowl with you all!

    Hi Chris, looks like my last message didn't go through. After telling them about GABA tea, my wife and 15 yr old daughter are interested in the tea ceremony. Is there space? Sorry about the late request.
