Qué harás

While cozy in a private tea hut in Berkeley 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.

Sold out? Never fear! Write Darius a message and he will set up a tasting with you. This experience is a must for anyone in the Berkeley area. Darius welcomes his guests to the world of tea. He immediately makes you feel at home, and confident in his remarkable expertise and mastery of tea. His knowledge and experience are surely unrivaled by anyone of his age this side of the Pacific — and the tea is of the absolute finest quality, selected for each guest from Darius’s personal collection, and infused right before your eyes. I would do again in a heartbeat. 5*****

I am not a tea connoisseur, but this felt like a fun thing to try. It was so much above anything I expected. Darius is super knowledgable, extremely welcoming, and just really connects with you. He's just centered and in the moment. Clearly loves tea, knows a hell of a lot about it, and makes it all very interactive. The teas themselves were amazing. I probably have grown up drinking bad tea bag tea with milk, and probably had never had teas of this quality before. It was really eye opening, and they were just so complex and varied. Very Highly Recommend.

I was not sure what to expect going in to a tea tasting workshop but Darius made us feel right at home and gave an amazing class on tea. His personal experiences and wealth of knowledge make him a master of his craft. He made us feel welcome and answered all our questions. It was a joy to watch him work and explain all things tea while adding in personal experiences. You can really tell Darius has a passion for tea and it is shown with his workshop. I would absolutely recommend doing this whether you are a novice like me or a master of tea as well.

I booked this Airbnb experience as a gift for my mom’s birthday and we loved it! We both love tea and drink it multiple times a day but we didn’t have the knowledge about tea that we have now. Darius was super knowledgeable and shared generously. He inspired us to learn more and did a great job cultivating conversation. Though we didn’t now the two other couples with us, we all connected and we enjoyed the shared experience. Highly recommend this experience!
