tea experiences

A relaxed and restorative 90 minute journey through an ancient tea ceremony, experiencing our wild and almost inaccessible teas.

Become part of Grass People Tree. See, smell and taste our teas, hear our stories and feel our passion first hand.

We'll share our teas and everything we know about them: from their involvement in history's most devastating wars to their place in our intricately linked world cultures; from our ancient tea rituals to the secret to a brew that never bitters. Often our guests share their stories and knowledge with us, too. We believe tea to be a wonderful medium for human connection.

If you'd like us to host a tea experience for your family, friends, colleagues, business or for a special occasion, we'd be happy to come to you. Please get in touch and together we'll make it happen.
