This group is for lovers, or would be lovers, of "Cha Dao", the Way of Tea. I will be hosting tea sessions most Sunday afternoons in a small group (Maximum of five guests) home environment.
These sessions will either be tea ceremony, often silent, where the emphasis will on the meditational and spiritual aspects of tea, or "gongfu" sessions where the focus is on appreciating fine and rare teas. In either case we will be drinking exclusively wild or organic artisan made teas from China, Taiwan and Japan, brewed and served in the traditional way.
Tea sessions are free, but I do invite a donation (£10-15 suggested) to cover costs, but mainly to be divided between Water Aid and the Light Meets Life project ( A project by my tea teacher to establish, as a charity a Cha Dao and Zen centre in Taiwan).
