Það sem verður gert

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.

We felt like we got a really great introduction to tea! I didn't know what I was missing. We're definitely going to be taking our tea drinking to the next level after this class. Thanks Darius!

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.
