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 website 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 website 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!
  • There are two amazing cakes from this trip that will be a part of our 2016 Light Meets Life fundraiser, one from each of the places we visited. It is very rare that a tea lover gets a chance to drink real old-growth tea from such old trees in Ai Lao & Jingmai!
  • Wu De may be headed to Bali in September if everything comes together. Be sure to check our social media for details about that trip. Last time was very rewarding, sharing tea in paradise.
  • We have started broadcasting live videos at the beginning of every month on our Facebook page. This is a great way to connect with us, learn together and ask any and all questions. Check it out!
  • The 2016 Photo Contest has officially begun! It will be going until August 5th, with only one entry per person this year. Runners-up will get free months of Global Tea Hut for friends and winners will get cakes, a Petr Novak side-handle teapot & Wu De's artwork!
  • We are giving away two cakes of Ambrosia each month until the end of the year. All you have to do to be elligible is take a picture of yourself serving Global Tea Hut tea and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #servingglobalteahut. We have already given the first few away! Don't miss the chance!
  • Wu De will be facilitating a six-day retreat in the Spanish Pyrenees. It will be a Zen & Tea One Flavor retreat focusing on the connection between meditation and tea. Participants will gather fresh spring water, meditate a few hours a day, learn chanting and have tea as well as Zen discourses throughout. It will be a rare chance to deepen your practice and learn tea at the same time. And, if that wasn't enough, it is being held at a gorgeous venue in the mountains of rural Spain. This event will run from October 8th to 14th. If you are interested in attending, please check out the website:

    Wu De will also be traveling in Germany and the Czech Republic after the retreat, sharing tea and teaching Cha Dao.

July Affirmation
I forgive those who have harmed me.

Do I allow resentment to reign over me? If all were understood, all would be forgiven. Others are as frail as we are; they are doing their best. Only when I practice forgiveness am I free, and forgiven.

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.
  • We are looking for help with farming, photography, video and web design. If any of you have experience in these things and are interested in staying at the Center to learn Cha Dao, with free room and board, contact us!
  • We have started gathering money towards offering one annual scholarship that will fly someone to the Center each year. Once we have enough, we will let the community nominate who that is. Let us know if you want to contribute!
  • We just had a one-month break in which everyone had a chance to meditate and rest more. We are enthusiastic for all our new guests!
