What we're about

This group is for anyone who is interested in meeting others interested in brewing, tasting, discussing, and learning about tea while sitting around a gongfu tea table, building long-lasting friendships with other like-minded tea-centric folks..

You've probably noticed that the more you learn about tea, the more there is to learn about tea.  I have formed this meetup social to bring together others who share the same passion for true tea. We will taste and discuss Chinese green, white, yellow, oolong, black, and pu'er teas.

Our group will visit tea houses, tea events, and perhaps once we get to know each other have tea socials at each other's homes.

Members' suggestions and participation are encouraged in order to keep it interesting.

The February 2022 Featured Tea has been chosen...

Zhong Guo Hong Cha aka Chinese Red Tea

There was a time when red tea was looked down on by the local Chinese tea community and was produced only for exportation to the West. These days are long gone. Today's Chinese Red Teas are amongst the finest of teas in the market and we will be brewing, tasting, and discussing four styles throughout the month of February.
