For a truly unique tea experience we offer traditional Chinese tea ceremonies
The tea ceremony, known as gong fu cha dao, is a chance to savour a selection of rare and exquisite teas from China - home to the best teas in the world. It is a true feast for the senses.
Guests are served tea seated around a tea table designed to enhance the spectacle, ritual and enjoyment of the tea.
Water flows across the tea table as cups and utensils are cleansed. Tea is presented and served in the traditional way in a variety of cups, smelling cups and brewing vessels.
Water, tea and conversation flow freely and in such a way that leaves guests feeling refreshed and inspired by the unique experience of sharing tea with others.
Each ceremony is tailored to your group but will typically include:
· Rare teas chosen from our curated Chinese tea collection
· Classic examples of White, Green, Yellow, Oolong, Black and Pu-erh tea
· Seasonal teas selected to be served at the perfect time of year
· Introduction to chaqi the refined quality of taste that distinguishes the highest grade Chinese teas
No experience is required for tea ceremonies.
