What’sip Tea Ceremony is a school educational tour as well as a cooperate event for tea lovers. Take a step into early tea connoisseurship with our tea tasting ceremony. Join in this rich and flavourful experience, you not only know your teas, but live it.

Tea tour

Beginning with an introduction tour to the most popular and delicious teas. A path through the world of tea will be guided by the nature of the tea itself. Each step will bring you to a new flavour, allowing your mind to grow and envelop each tea by its natural characteristics. You will learn about their origins, flavours, distinctive qualities, health benefits and methods of infusion. We will also demonstrate the differences and benefits of various types of tea pots and cups. Ask us while you are there, we are here to share our experience.

Tea Tasting

Once the tea introduction tour has been completed, the tea tasting portion of your ceremony will begin. After you have been familiarized with the types of tea, each member of your group can take their time to pick the tea that intrigued them the most. Moving from the mildest to the strongest flavors, these choices will be brewed for the entire group to taste and discuss. We encourage you to explore the flavors and complexities of each tea and to find out how others may react differently or similarly to the same taste.

Tea ceremony

We want you to have a fully cultured tea experience traced back to it’s origin. Besides modern infusion techniques, you are able to appreciate tea infused in the traditional Chinese tea ceremony method. You will enjoy multiple brews of reviving, and long lingering after-taste in fine gourmet teas.
