About the event
Wildlight Yoga would like to invite you to join us for a Gongfu cha session, hosted by Annie Xiang, the founder of Volition Tea, a BIPOC-owned Chicago-based tea company offering a curated selection of sustainably-grown loose leaf teas from China.
Gongfu cha, or Chinese tea ceremony, is a traditional way of making Chinese tea that really emphasizes on being present, appreciating teas, and understanding tea culture. Steeping teas Gongfu Cha style allows people to slow down, smell the aroma, notice how leaves unfurl, and taste the varying flavor notes with deep intentions. Annie incorporates mindfulness practice and storytelling with her Gongfu Cha session.
In this 1.5 hour period of steeping at least three different teas, tea becomes the point of convergence, as it brings people to the table, away from technology, to truly build a connection with one another, and of course with tea. At the end of this session, you will walk away with new found interest in and appreciation for quality teas, as well as elevated five senses to notice beauty that's within our everyday life.
