A gentle reminder to respectfully reconnect with our humanity through tea ritual. Covering the fundamentals in Gongfu cha, they effortlessly balance storytelling with demonstrations and practical insight. Accompanied by Rose Red, the subtle floral aromas accentuated the warmth in the intimate setting.

This tea tasting is full of depth, story and heart. Rong and Levi guide us to discover tea in a different light where "less means more" fits right. They hold a container for us to let go of our attachments and expectations and dive into the present moment. Sharing this community made the tasting even more heart warming.

I really enjoyed this session and learning more about the connection between us - the tea drinker - and the connection we can feel back to the soil when consuming tea. It went deep inside the art on gong-fu brewing and was a guided tasting on their Red Rose tea. It was absolutely lovely to spend a moment with others and deeply connect with our shared passion for tea. I enjoyed their presence and leading style immensely.

One major takeaway that I had was the intent behind drinking tea and slowing down to really enjoy the moment. Feel the impact that it has on you. I realized that I really need to slow down and enjoy the tea sessions and the effect that it can have on my life more.
