Living tea experience

An informative, relaxed and restorative journey through an ancient tea ceremony, you will never think tea the same way again.

Discover tea that is alive and how it makes you feel. See, smell, touch and taste the 2500 year tea culture and celebrate with us the vibrant indigenous traditions.

Different from tea picked from plantation and made by machinery, Living Tea is a traditional tea-making philosophy that follows the rhythm of nature and embodies tea as a living being. Through ancient tea ritual and storytelling, this experience celebrates our ancestral insights of holistic health, culture diversity and environmental harmony.

If you'd like us to host a virtual tea experience for your family, friends, colleagues, business or for a special occasion,  please get in touch.
