What we're about

Public Group

Meetup for tea enthusiasts in the Sacramento area to come together to drink and learn about tea, socialize, and relax. Though all tea comes from the same plant (Camellia sinensis), it can be processed in different ways to create black, green, white, oolong, and other types of tea, and flavored in virtually unlimited ways. Let’s develop an appreciation for this venerable brew together and make some new friends along the way. Tea as a beverage, tea as an expression of culture, tea as therapy—whatever your interest and knowledge level, all are welcome to join and ideas for events are encouraged.
