Intro to Tea Ceremony and Meditation

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the whole earth revolves.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Mad Monk Tea is proud to offer a focused 2 hour course on Tea and Meditation. For the past 6 years Taylor Drye has been studying the fine arts of Chinese Tea Ceremony and Meditation.  As owner of Mad Monk Tea he has spent well over 10,000 hours serving tea in formal and semi-formal settings, and has traveled extensively through the major tea producing regions of Taiwan and China.  In this course you will be learning Taylor’s own personal daily Tea Meditation, the result of years of intensive study with amazing tea masters in both Asia and North America.
