Event Overview

Event Overview 

This introduction to Gongfu tea 功夫茶 is a hands-on experience for beginners to learn more about a prominent Chinese method of tea brewing. You'll use a chawan (lidded tea cup) and other tea accessories to create beautiful cups of tea for yourself and others. North Branch will provide all the essentials to learn how to create Gongfu tea. Tea is provided by Spirit Tea


During this class we will be talking about the essential steps to brew Gongfu tea, talk a little bit about the history of tea, and most importantly we will brew Gongfu tea. The time is as much about learning as it is about enjoying one another's company with a delicious cup of tea. After the class, you will get the chance to learn about bookbinding and other North Branch projects.


What's Provided

All supplies for you to make Gongfu tea will be provided in the workshop. You'll have the opportunity to purchase sets of ceramic teaware after the workshop.
