Tea Ceremony

Tea Ceremony

Drinking tea aids with digestion, enlivens the spirit, and keeps the mind alert. While tea is popular with everyone today, Buddhist monasteries were the first to develop and promote the virtues of tea drinking and the Tea Ceremony.

Tea brings warmth and relaxation to the drinker. The Tea Ceremony creates a space where tea is served in peace and harmony, where you relax and put your troubles behind you.  Tea brings with it a special tranquility, purifying one’s heart and bringing it closer to mindfulness. Tea is one of our greatest companions in life.

We welcome you to join us along the River Terrace in experiencing the traditional art of tea ceremony and tasting Oolong tea harvested from the highest mountains of Taiwan.
