“To be” is to inter-be. You cannot just be by yourself alone. You have to inter-be with every other thing.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Why Tea matters

I’ve come to view tea – the practice of it, drinking, learning, sharing and teaching of it – to be one of humanity’s most powerful connectors. Tea touches all of your senses, supporting body, intellect and emotion. Tea teaches us to be vulnerable as we sit in the present moment, and witnesses our being listened to.

My own practice is informed by nearly two decades of immersion in the professional world of tea, from garden to cup, as a teacher grounded in adult learning principles, with a unique focus on accessibility issues and trauma-sensitive support.


Being Tea means removing barriers to understanding

I make tea and practice accessible to teachers and students alike through on-site workshops, group and private sessions, and self-driven online learning. Discover how Being Tea can open up your life to tea!
