CHA DAO "THE WAY OF TEA" IS A PRACTICE THAT COMES FROM ANCIENT CHINESE LINEAGE. IT HAS BEEN USED SINCE ITS DISCOVERY BY THE DAOISTS AND SAGES AS A FORM OF MEDICINE AND A WAY TO CULTIVATE AWAKENED PRESENCE, SUSTAINING LONG STATES OF MEDITATION. TEA IS A PLANT TEACHER, A SPIRIT OF NATURE, MANIFESTED THROUGH THIS LEAF AND AWAKENED BY HOT WATER. USED IN CEREMONY, IT IS A DANCE BETWEEN THE ELEMENTS, A SENSORY EXPLORATION OF PRESENCE, WHERE EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED BY SPACE.

GLOBAL TEA HUT IS A COMMUNITY OF GLOBAL TEA LOVERS IN ALMOST FORTY COUNTRIES WHO ARE LOOKING TO CONNECT, SHARE TEA AND HEART SPACE AND LEARN ABOUT TEA TOGETHER. WE SUPPORT FREE TEA CENTERS, SCHOOLS THAT TEACH TEA BREWING AND CULTIVATION WITHOUT ANY FINANCIAL MOTIVATION.
