ZEN & TEA TOUR: JAPAN 

NOTE::  DATES ARE NOT YET SET. 

After nearly a decade of yearly travel to Japan and Taiwan, we have been increasingly asked to host a Tea Tour abroad.  Now, it's finally happening. This coming Spring 2018 (April/May) we will be hosting a guided tour to two of the most inspiring and historic destinations for connecting to the Heart of Tea Culture. 

ON A JOURNEY THAT WILL FOREVER INFLUENCE YOUR LIFE, YOU'LL RAISE THE LEVEL OF YOUR PERSONAL TEA PRACTICE, CONNECT WITH ELEMENTS OF TEA FARMING, AND GLEAN AN ESSENCE OF ZEN IN DAILY LIFE.

11 Days Tour will include hotel, ground transportation, two meals a day, all entry tickets and passes.  We will convene and be based in Taipei, travel for five days, then take a short (3 hour) flight to Japan to spend another five days of Cultural Immersion in Kyoto.  We will experience Tea and Serenity amidst some of the most breathtaking locations in the world, including nature spots, Zen Temples, Tea Gardens and much more. 

EXACT DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED in SPRING 2018          

LIMITED TO 5 PARTICIPANTS  -  We want this to be a very intimate and deeply inspiring experience, and will not extend the size of the tour group.  If you intend to join along with a partner or friend that you'd like to share this with, please be sure to get both deposits in early and at the same time. With so much interest building around this offering, it's very likely this trip will quickly reach capacity.  Please respond soon with your intentions.
