Tea Ceremony

What is the Tea Ceremony?

The tea ceremony allows participants to learn meticulous attention to detail in preparing, brewing, pouring, serving and drinking tea. We have created a space where tea is served in peace and harmony, where you can relax and put your troubles behind you.  Joining us this year is our renowned tea meditation master, Teacher April Jin from Taiwan. During the tea ceremony, High Mountain Oolong tea will be brewed for everyone to taste and enjoy.  

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 with it a special tranquility, purifying one’s heart and bringing it closer to mindfulness. 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.
