My work is about connecting curiosity with physically embodied knowledge – beyond bookwork – so you can work and play with tea naturally, confidently, just as you are. Being Tea does this through professional skills development, sensory-rich workshops, tea meditation training, and private project consulting for tea programs.


Nice to meet you! I’m Suzette (“Sooz”), and Being Tea is my education-focused small company. I’ve been a professional tea trainer for over 15 years, and even received recognition with a World Tea Award for Best Tea Educator in 2018. Teaching and developing pathways for accessible tea education is what I do for a living. This year, I’m also working on certification as a psychologically-sensitive yoga teacher, integrating tea and meditation with yoga. Learn more about my experience in tea and how I can help you!
