Part 1. What is tea? The story of camellia sinensis
Join us at Likeminds, Avoca, on Saturday afternoon at 4:30pm- for our monthly pop-up tea house series, where we share our passion for Gong fu cha, and tea culture.
Each month, we will learn how to appreciate tea brewed Gong Fu style.
We will dive deep into 2-3 rare pure leaf teas- curated seasonally, as we discuss different topics in relation to Gong Fu Cha and tea culture.
We encourage open and honest discourse at our events, this is as much a social gathering as an educational workshop, so please bring an open mind and open heart.
All are welcome.

Throughout history, tea and tea houses have been the catalyst for great minds to come together for deep conversations, philosophical debates and discussions about arts & music.
Tea is one of the purest forms of human expression, it is a universal language that gives us the common ground we humans need to connect, relate and survive.
WHAT IS GONG FU CHA?
Gong Fu Cha, is the pinnacle of tea preparation and appreciation.
Directly translated as “tea made with skill” Gong fu cha, is about understanding all the different types of teas and their variables in tea-picking, processing and brewing, to achieve with a high degree of precision and consistency, the best outcome/experience for both the host, the leaf and the guests.
Through these practical steps, we maximise the flavour and aroma that each tea can express and develop a deeper understanding of the unique energy or Qi, that each tea brings.
