Private Ceremonies

Private Learning Tea Experience

The Learning Tea Experience is an opportunity to deepen your tea knowledge and experience. The event will be tailored to your familiarity with tea and personal areas of interest. Over the course of 2,5 hours we will share and enjoy 3 different teas carefully selected by Antonio for your party. Depending on your level of experience and personal wishes, you may choose to enjoy 3 different teas from 3 different tea categories or you may choose to focus on a particular tea category such as Green Tea, Puerh Tea, Oolong Tea, Red Tea, Black Tea or White Tea. Or focus on a more specific genre such as Taiwanese Oolong, Chinese Green Tea or Shou Puerh, for example. Once you’ve purchased your Learning Tea Experience we will contact you and agree on the finer details.

For each tea Antonio will begin by giving some background information before brewing. We will brew the first few steepings in silence so as to really focus on the tea and then brew some more steepings while talking more about the tea, sharing impressions, asking questions etc. Read more below:

 

Private Bowl Tea Ceremony

The Bowl Tea ceremony is an invitation to find harmony, peace, relaxation and well-being through tea. It is perfect for connecting to oneself, our friends and family and nature. This ceremony helps us deepen our relationship with tea and pays tribute to the legend of how Emperor Sheng Nong “The Divine farmer”, discovered tea and its potential for healing.

The Bowl Tea ceremony is perfect for letting go of the analytical mind and dropping into a deep tea meditation. The essence of Bowl Tea is zen, where we are invited to appreciate things as they are, not as how we would like them to be. This Tea Ceremony  invites the guest to focus their attention, to relax their mind and spirit, sharing tea and the present moment with friends in an open, calm atmosphere that involves putting our attention on all 5 senses.
