Tea Classes

Our utmost goal with our tea classes is to guide participants to find a deeper personal relationship with tea through real, felt experience in the body. During each class we will take you on a journey to discover tastes, aromas and sensations of the tea plant, the environment in which it grows, and the people who devote their lives to it.

Floating Leaves is now offering public tea classes!

As people in Seattle have slowly warmed up to going out of the house for events, we had begun by offering privately scheduled classes. However, we are now ready to start offering classes open to the public twice a month so that participants can choose just one seat in a tea class of up to five people. And the best part is you will have the chance to meet new tea friends in the class! Tickets are $35 per person.

Privately Scheduled Classes

Classes are held at or after 4pm (after business hours), and usually run for a minimum of two hours. There is a flat rate fee of $150 for up to 5 people. You will receive a 10% discount on any tea bought the day of the class.

If you are interested in scheduling a class, please send us an email or contact us through the form below with some days that will work for you.


What Does A Tea Class Entail?

We will guide these tea classes to meet the needs of the people in the room. Our focus will *always be tea tasting and tea brewing. You can also get a feel for how to guide a tea session of your own in your own space by following our example.

Tea tasting (or evaluation) is a skill that must be honed in order to brew better tea, or else the brewer may not know what to look for to guide her in moving forward. As so with improved brewing technique she can taste more nuances in the tea. So, like the two wings of a bird in flight, tea tasting and tea brewing support each other, and we therefore will lead participants to either learn tasting or brewing based on what is needed at that time. Please come with an open mind and be prepared to focus on either subject.

*We do not focus on explaining production methods, identifying growing regions or memorizing cultivars. We consider this information to be useful and fascinating, but only once the quality of tea can be evaluated.


(We'll try to remind you again, but make sure to eat something before coming to the class. We'll drink lots of teas, and a full belly is a must -- or else you might get too high!)
