Inside the Hut

by Global Tea Hut

Because of the large number of tea sessions happening around the world, we are going to post about them on our site from now on and use this section to discuss news happening around the world. If you have any news, like a wedding, birth or tea happening, let us know and we'll write about it here. Also, our new site, coming in the next few months, will connect you to tea sessions around the world in a much better way than this page ever could!
  • If you haven't yet, check out the "discussion" section of our webpage. There is now a place for you to leave reviews of every month's tea, as well as your experiences with the gongfu tea tips!

  • Rich Allum, a contributor to this month's issue, and his beautiful wife Becky just gave birth to a healthy teawayfarer named Tobias Stanely Allum. Raise a bowl in congratulations to them!

  • Please make some comments under the new videos and let us know what you think of the multi-media Global Tea Hut.

  • We are creating a survey for you all, which we will email you about. It will help us to understand how you use this magazine, which parts you enjoy and want to see more of, and what we need to improve.

  • Our 2015 Light Meets Life teas are all going fast, and one is already sold out, so if you want one you should order soon!

  • Stay tuned for an announcement about this year's Global Tea Hut Trip. You have to have been a member all throughout 2015 to be eligible. This year, we will be reserving half the spots for new guests!
February Affirmation
How you do anything is how you do everything.

Much more of our life will be spent doing small things like walking up stairs than the things we think define us. Do I put my heart, my respect and soul in all that I do? Do I miss my own life?

Center News
  • Before you visit, check out the center's website ( to read about the schedule, food, what you should bring, etc. We've had a big increase in our number of guests lately, so if possible please contact us well in advance to arrange a visit.
  • Our brother Denis Mikhaylov is taking precepts in our tradition this month. He will soon receive his tea name.
  • It is Shen Su's birthday this month, on February 9th, to be specific. Send him some light, email him or raise a bowl. He is a bright soul, without whom the center would not be able to run!
  • The center will be closed from April 24th to the end of May, like every year, to facilitate the third annual Global Tea Hut Trip. Wu De plans to do less traveling this year, so he will be here teaching except for that time. Check our website for more details.
