Wu De’s Teaching Events
Around the World

The Spread of Cha Dao, One Bowl at a Time


Wu De has been around the world sharing tea spirit for years now. It is how so many of us found our way here, after all. We often create four main kinds of events when he travels:

The first is an open, public ceremony that is free and can be limited or very large in size. The aim of these is to foster community. We will drink tea together in silence for forty minutes to an hour, followed by a brief introduction to tea.

The second kind of event is a morning of Cha Dao, in which we drink some tea in silence and spend a morning learning about the practical tools you will need to start a tea practice, as well as the best approach to a life of tea.

The third type of events is linear. Wu De is also very much a tea geek, and therefore loves lecturing on Wuyi Cliff Tea, aging puerh, Liu Bao, gongfu tea brewing, the history of tea, etc. These lectures are, of course, accompanied by tea and often are around two hours.

The final kind of event is an extended retreat, lasting three to seven days. These events are a chance to learn and practice meditation, its connection to tea and how to use tea as a spiritual tool in one’s daily life.

Wu De is dedicated to sharing a life of Tea free of personal profit. Events are donation based, usually with suggested amounts. If one is incapable of meeting the suggested donation, we do our best to accommodate. Ultimately we are here to build community and would love one day to share tea around the world free of charge. All the support we receive goes toward the cost of travel expenses, venue rentals, etc.  He travels humbly, staying with students or homes opened to him. Anything generated beyond that, goes towards The Tea Sage Hut, which is a free tea center in Taiwan, or to raise funds for our new projected tea center Light Meets Life.
