About the Event

In the ninth century when tea was traded to Mongolia, Tibet, and Japan, it became the favorite drink of Buddhist monks, who found that it helped them stay awake during long periods of prayer and meditation. Used as an elixir of sobriety and wakeful tranquility, tea was also a means of spiritual refreshment and the ritual of preparing and partaking of it was an occasion for spiritual conviviality, a way to go beyond this world and enter a realm apart. In this class we will go over the basics of the Camellia Sinensis tea leaf and how to create your own tea ritual. Emilie will also share with you the most symbolic tea rituals around the world.
