Inside the Hut

by Global Tea Hut

Coming Soon to Global Tea Hut Magazine
  • Tea & Zen Retreats
  • Recipes & Tea
  • Chajin Stories/Biographies

  • If you serve tea regularly and would like some extra magazines or tea tins to give out to help spread the word about Global Tea Hut, please let us know. We are also looking to donate magazines to public places.
  • Please continue to use the app. Don't feel intimidated to post about your daily tea, any questions you have about tea or teaware, or your reflections on the magazine or the Tea of the Month!
  • The live broadcasts are so much fun! We are doing two every month: one in the beginning, which is a great Q & A, and another broadcast at the end of the month, where we discuss the Tea of the Month.
  • Wu De will be in Hong Kong mid-January hosting some tea events. They should be posted on the website very soon (under the "Connect" tab). This will be our first time hosting there, which is exciting!
  • Our Light Meets Life fundraiser teas and teaware have arrived. We have some of the best cakes we have ever produced and some glorious gongfu teaware. All the proceeds will help build our future Center, called "Light Meets Life."
  • We are considering hosting two Annual Global Tea Hut Trips in 2018: our usual spring trip to a tea-growing region of Asia and a second trip within Taiwan itself. Would this second trip interest you?
  • We have been looking at land for Light Meets Life. Help us make our new Center a reality by reading the "10kx2020" pamphlet and contacting us if you feel there is any way you can help!
December Affirmation
I am full of joy and cheer

We often assume that joy is something that occurs when we get what we want, but joy is something to cultivate. And what better time than the holidays? Am I as cheerful and joyous as I wish to be? What can I do to be more joyful today?

Center News
  • Before you visit, check out the Center's website ( to read about the schedule, food, what you should bring, etc. Make sure you apply early for courses as they fill up fast (this is why we need a bigger, more awesome Center).
  • We are hiring! We have three jobs to fill: a PR position, a web designer and we are offering a one-year internship for a photographer/videographer. All three positions are paid. Check out the "10kx2020" pamphlet for details.
  • We are considering offering one longer, more meditative course for older/experienced students in 2018. This course would be twenty days, cover each brewing method more indepth and also include more meditation each day. Would you be interested? If so, what time of year would be best for you?
  • If courses are full, please join the waiting list and be ready to travel. Spaces do often open up last minute!
