Some of the best high-quality teas are served at places not many are aware of. Everyone knows about certain tea stores and famous big hotels serving afternoon tea. However, just around the corner from them, on hidden streets and alleyways, there are beautiful boutiques, cafés, and tea houses that serve amazing teas worth exploring. We can have lapsang souchong tea with freshly-baked scones, homemade clotted cream, and jam in a place hidden on the sunlit floor of a boutique fashion retailer. Or we can discover the beauty of Japanese green tea in the ambiance of another fashion boutique. We can become immersed in the luxurious teas of a historical brand, or enjoy unique small-production teas at a family-owned tea shop in a hidden alley. This experience will take us to lesser-known places. If you cannot make any days offered but still would like to join this experience please contact me and I will try to arrange something for those dates.
Some people call me a tea whisperer. I am a founder of a company that guides curious minds into the world of tea through tea ceremonies, tours, and workshops. I help others learn about this magical world, and how to master the art of living slowly. After leaving my corporate job nearly 10 years ago, I studied the rich culture and history of tea with masters in London, China, and Taiwan.
Scones with clotted cream
Teas at various locations
We will mainly be in and around Central London. Some of the tea shops and cafés are run by people who are so passionate about what they do that it is easy to feel a piece of their heart in every sip of tea.
