What you'll do
At first, you come into an environment of light, nature and teaware. We have set up a place especially for the ocasion that is warm and welcoming. They say the only three things you need for a true tea ceremony is heaven, earth and someone. If you pay close attention you can also notice that tea is already waiting for you to explore its secrets. There might be other people or not, that is up to you. Your host will already be there. Then you pick your spot, there is a cushion waiting for you, or a chair if you prefer, and the ceremony starts. There are not two that are alike. Whatever happens there is up to the unique combination of the frame provided by the host, your personal input and whatever energies tea brings into play according to that. We get the comment more often than not that our tea ceremonies are unlike any other that people have experienced because we blend together a number of influences in them. Among them we can clearly identify buddhist wisdom, zen practices, Mexican ancient lore, oriental tea folklore, barista hints and a fully loving personal touch.
Tea has been imprinted in my way of life for 5 years now. I have a tea project and host tea ceremonies regularly. Once a week and in different social gatherings I have facilitated experiences in groups of 6 people maximum. It is personal :) In this case you are invited to immerse yourself into the world of this ancient practice in a unique and beautiful way, by doing it and navigating through with someone whose interests and passions meet here and now with the brew and the crew. That's you! Since tea is consumed by people, it has been associated with discovering the self. Your tea is served!
Tea is always best with something light and heart-y in our stomachs. Suitable bite-sized treats are provided for the occasion
All tea and special ware is taken care of and available , along with the necessary supplies for a unique tea experience.
Where you'll be
We will be inside the ceremonial tea room at the heart of Mexico City in a beautiful street lined up with trees. We especially recommend sunset experiences when the skies are clear. It is unique as it is prepared to be a comfortable and fulfilling environment for tea practice. This is where the shared personal journeys begin. Where they take us is always something to discover. This is also where we return... without ever having departed.
