For years, I’ve had students in workshops at studios, festivals or conferences ask, “Where can I go to do this more?

This made me realize that online education for tea should be made available with the same intent and quality as in-person workshops: Something self-directed yet gently guided, rooted in natural curiosity, allowing people to learn about tea and practice at their own pace. Without the required goal or financial pressure of a certification program.

The Being Tea online membership program allows anyone – at whatever level they are or goals they have – to have access to supportive, independently produced tea education.


How membership levels work

Being Tea’s monthly membership is hosted on a platform called Patreon. The two basic levels are very simple:

One new class per month for $5 members, plus access to class archive, or…


… Two new classes per month for $10 members, plus class archive access.


Customized tiers for businesses & private tutoring also available.

Contact me below for details!


*NEW* classes are posted every single month.

All classes are recorded for anytime playback. They’re also livestreamed, so you can take them live if you like!

Topics include functional tea skills for both enthusiast and professional, as well as the exploration of tea’s usage in meditation and mindfulness practices. For someone who is interested in learning meditation but experiences difficulty keeping a practice, working with tea can be a very strong addition.

The goal is to guide and empower students to engage with their tea more intuitively, in a way that can be integrated daily, both in work and in personal life. This is how I learned tea, through apprenticeship and being around tea every single day.


Education and shepherding sensory, felt connections to tea is my personal passion – it’s why I’ve worked in tea as a trainer, full time, for over 15 years. If you’d like to know more about my background and how I teach, visit my ABOUT page here.
