tea practice / mentorship

I am here to offer inspiration, guidance and companionship for your tea practice. Below, you will find my blog where I share my experiences and insights as a student of Tea. I hope it can inspire you in your tea practice. 

If you are interested in mentorship around ‘The Way of Tea’, you may send an email to spintheleaves@gmail.com or fill in the contact form here. Different programs (in-person or remote) can be tailor-made depending on where you are on your tea journey.

Ultimately this requires you to show up, be open and commit to yourself.
