What could be better than spending your morning or afternoon in the trendiest area of London and drinking lots of high quaility tea? Nothing can beat that!
On this tour there will be less walking and less history talking (unless you ask!) than on other Tea Walks. Instead you will be visiting 4 amazing unique places in the area and tasting tea in them. I will talk about the teas and explain why these places are unique, and you will be able to see a different side of Shoreditch - which is usually not on display. You will even meet the owners of some of the teahouses too!
On the tour you will taste a Japanese tea, Indian masala chai and some nice Chinese teas too. We will discuss the difference between Japanese and Chinese teas, how and when the Japanese started steaming their tea, how many types of Chinese teas there are, and much much more! It's almost like a mini tea masterclass!
After the tea session there will be the chance to socialise a bit more!
The Tour will last approximately 3 hours.
All teas in various locations are included in the price. Please note that because this is a TASTING tour, there will be a small portion of tea in each place, not a whole big cup or a teapot for each person.
See you soon!

My search took me to Indian Himalayas to study Japanese form of dance called Butoh, to Beijing to study circus arts and tea mastery, to India again to study yoga and meditation, and back to London to share what I learned and experienced with you!
