Take your tea practice to the next level with this beautiful Bowl Tea Starter Set.
This one of a kind set includes:
10 Grams of our Wild Mountain White Tea
10 Grams of our Inner Calm GABA Oolong
10 Grams of our Shaman's Drum Aged Puerh
The items in this set have been specifically selected to guide you into the practice of ceremonial Bowl Tea. The 3 styles of tea each hold a unique energy and experience waiting to be discovered in your meditative sessions.
About the Purion Teapot: Purion is a unique and secret combination of minerals and clay produced by Lin’s Ceramics in Taiwan. It is said to have a "softening" or "mellowing out" effect on teas that may otherwise be more bitter or harsh. Because this clay is semi-porous it is great for brewing darker Oolongs and Puerh Teas.
The Side Handle design of this teapot makes it perfect for meditative bowl tea sessions. It's smaller size is great for personal use or to serve 2-3 people. It’s also a great size and weight for practicing serving a bowl tea ceremony, before moving on to larger and heavier teapots.
About the Infinite Dao Tea Bowl: These one of a kind tea bowls were custom made for The Retreat by Lauren Johnson of Johnson Ceramics. From the feel of the bowl in your hands, to the swirling patterning within and around them, these bowls offer a reflection of the infinite uniqueness we call the Dao. And much like the Dao, words don't come close to describing their true nature.
Each one of these bowls offers a unique energy and design that moves them beyond being just "ordinary bowls," and turns them into sacred vessels perfect for meditative Bowl Tea sessions.
About the Teas:
Wild Mountain White Tea: Bai Mu Dan, or "White Peony" is a classic white tea that is a combination of leaves and buds picked early in the spring season. This particular tea comes from a wild, zero intervention high mountain plot of land in Fujian province. The biodiverse environment where this tea grows infuses it with a freshness and depth of flavor that is hard to find in conventionally grown teas.
This tea is wonderful when brewed gong fu style, and also delicious as a cold brew drink during the warm summer months.
Inner Calm: GABA Oolong is a unique tea that is processed in a low oxygen environment in order to increase concentrations of GABA, or gamma-Aminobutyric acid, a naturally occurring neurotransmitter. Put simply, GABA helps you feel calmer and more relaxed. Because of this, GABA Oolongs are a great choice for drinking later in the day or in the evenings. This particular GABA Oolong is a unique treat! It was grown without the use of any agrochemicals in the high mountains at 1300 meters in Alishan, Taiwan. This tea was hand picked and processed in the Spring of 2019 and responds well to all styles of brewing, but we love it most for deep and meditative Bowl Tea sessions!
Shaman's Drum: This late 1980's Shou Puerh is one of our all time favorites, hands down. The grounding energy of this tea is powerful, as is the deep earthy flavors. It is extremely patient and can be brewed over and over, and over again. The deep grounding Qi in this tea makes for some powerful meditative bowl tea sessions.
If you were to purchase each of these items separately, it would cost $185, but as part of this set, only $150.
Prepare your space, heat the kettle, and you'll have everything you need to dive deep into the magic of Ceremonial Bowl Tea.
**There are only 4 of these sets available, and when they are gone, they are gone. For anyone that purchases this set, I will offer a free online training on Bowl Tea Ceremony if you so desire.**
