Guided Origin Tasting: Teas of Nepal

*** SOLD OUT! *** September 27, 12:00-2:00pm CST

Join me for a special tasting event: a guided origin tasting of a season of tea from Nepal! I was blessed to visit Nepal on a tea exploration and company research mission several years ago, and it’s a place that has held deep meaning and resonance for me ever since. The place I spent significant time with was Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden, innovators and pioneers in natural and truly sustainable tea farming. It is with this honor that I’m sharing these tea treasures with you, to help expand knowledge and experience with teas from places far from home.

In this session, we’ll be tasting 4 teas all from the same year from Jun Chiyabari, exploring how a tea story evolves throughout the year and the decisions the tea producer makes along the way as seasons unfold. Ticket price includes the class plus a sample kit of 4 teas (shipping within the US only). I’ll provide instructions for suggested teaware to prepare the teas along with the group in this live, interactive class.

Limited to a small number of guests, so we can create a more intimate and interactive experience. Don’t miss out! When these teas are gone, they’re really gone!


Tea & Contemplation

Every Friday, 8am – 9am CST (GMT -5)
Every Friday, you can join me and my dear friend, yoga teacher Adam Grossi, as we co-teach a practice of exploring inner world connections. Both tea and yoga come from rich traditions of contemplative practice, intended to be used in the home by everyday folks, and have much to offer for guiding us through choppy waters. We’ll start each session with themed, guided tea meditation, then a reading/sharing of poetry, essays, or philosophical writing, and discussion for how we incorporate this into our daily life and coping toolbox.

This practice is specifically designed to work with whatever tea you may have available already at home. No requisite study of either tea or formal meditation is needed to begin. These classes are $12, split between myself and Adam. If funds are an issue, please let me know and we’ll take care of you!
