Qué harás

While cozy in a private tearoom in Orinda we will guide you through a tasting expedition, led by one of our highly trained tea "sommeliers". You will have a unique opportunity to taste the vast and ancient world of tea, become familiar with whole-leaf artisan varietals and their growing processes, learn how to develop your taste buds and expertly steep tea at home.

We will begin our 2-hour workshop by tasting a variety of specialty White, Green, Oolong, Black, and Pu-erhs teas. As we taste each tea we'll explain what defines each category, share fun stories from visiting these farms in the east, and talk about the health benefits of each tea. Enjoy the presentation as each tea is prepared with mindfulness and precision, using specialty pots and tea tools in the traditional ways of the Chinese Tea Ceremony. Questions are always welcome and you will also have a chance to practice pouring tea for yourself, or friends and family.

Guests have been enjoying this workshop as a casual outing and also as a corporate team building event!

Hello! My name is Darius. I am the Procurement Director and Head Tea Master for Teance Teas. For the last 15 year I have trained in Cha Tao (The Way of Tea), including an apprenticeship under Master Winnie Yu, venturing around the world visiting tea gardens in Japan, Taiwan, China and India; learning about the growing, harvesting, and preparation methods of this ancient art form. I specialize in teaching classes on White, Green, Oolong, Black, Pu-erh, and Herbal teas . I incorporate mindfulness practices into preparing and serving these teas and enjoys sharing all the healthy secrets with you.

Wandering through the hills to this magical home set a great backdrop to an excursion into the world of tea! Our hosts conversation and deep experience in the industry was beyond expectations and the information, culture, and new appreciation for the art of tea will be a lasting memory of our trip. We are so glad to have created this friendship and powerful reference towards continued learning of tea-craft. 5 stars is not enough to encourage you to try this yourself, an absolute must!!!

I shared a fantastic afternoon with Darius tea tasting. At first, he messaged me regarding what I want the focus of the workshop to be on and when I said Japanese tea, he waited until he received the correct teas before hosting my experience. He was able to incorporate traditional Japanese and some Chinese green teas, and also, shared a matcha muffin to curb the caffeine overload. Overall, his knowledge of tea and the traditions around tea made the experience personable and fun. I highly recommend Darius for hosting future events and team building workshops. I also left with a nice caffeine buzz!

We enjoyed a relaxing Monday afternoon at the teahouse in a wooded neighborhood setting. Darius was very welcoming and we felt comfortable and safe in the environment. Darius was thorough in explaining the plan for the tasting experience and made sure that we felt welcome to be as much a part of the process as we wished and invited us to ask questions. The tastings and information about the type, gathering, processing and preparation of tea leaves was nicely paced and easy to follow. Darius was organized and neat. The experience was top notch.
