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!
The 2016 Light Meets Life Fundraiser is now in full swing, with more and more cakes showing up all the time. We have two amazing old-growth sheng teas this year, a Five Element shou, an amazing dian hong from Big Snow Mt. and another surprise as well!
Wu De will be in Bali in late January with a possible stop in New Zealand as well. Then Wu De and Sam will be traveling in New Zealand and Australia some time in March. These events should all be announced soon. Check the website for details.
We have a new page for Wu De's teaching events around the world. Many of you are always asking for updates, so we thought it was about time to share them: www.globalteahut.org/wudeteachings.
We have a goal to reach a thousand members by the end of the year. You can help by hosting a bit more, sharing more tea and letting people know about all the wonderful education in these magazines, amazing organic tea and beautiful global tea community. Let us know how we can help you serve more tea!
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!
We are now offering free Light Meets Life cakes to authors whose submissions are accepted in Global Tea Hut. Let us know if you are interested in future topics or if you have a great idea for a tea-related article and we'd be happy to take a look at your work.
We are giving away two cakes of Ambrosia each month until the end of the year. All you have to do to be eligible 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!
I am fulfilled.
There is nothing that can be added to this moment to make me more alive. There is no way to diminish this moment either. This bowl of tea is complete. Am I whole? Am I free? Let it be, with this very sip!
Before you visit, check out the Center's website (www.teasagehut.org) 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 to fly someone to the Center each year. Once we have enough, we will let the community nominate candidates. Let us know if you want to contribute to help make this happen!
We are thinking of hosting some ten-day tea courses at the Center in 2017. Let us know if you are interested in attending.
