Tea offers us the rare experience of immediate wordless presence in the midst of the city hustle.
Sitting together with tea in this way returns us to ourselves and our senses, mindfully connecting us to self — each other — our surroundings.
Tea is an ancient immersive experience, an original human technology, which helps us modern folk to remember who we are beyond our digital habits and the attendant stresses that take hold of our consciousness.
Facilitated by Adam Yasmin, former UX designer turned certified digital wellness educator - speaker - coach.
Adam brings 15 years of Chinese tea culture study & practice to virtual + in-person facilitation.
He’s privileged to have facilitated with teams at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, IDEO, Creative Mornings, Bruce Lee Family Companies, GIFCT, General Assembly, and more.
Plan approximately 90 minutes for a tea experience.
Sessions come with Chinese & Taiwanese teas as well as teaware & accoutrements to accommodate groups up to 10.
“Adam brought his immersive tea experience to the IDEO San Francisco office on a peaceful afternoon, in between my continuous screen time. It is such a meditative moment that softly invites me to jump out of the digital world and create a new spectrum to my day-to-day. Thank you Adam for sharing your thoughts and exploration of the tea experience and your passion for the culture.”
— Ziyuan 'Zoey' Zhu, Software Designer, IDEO
“..The experience is one of quiet bonding and presence. We get to take intentional time to be calm, centered, and connected, and in that, we are open and bonded in the best of ways - with quiet awareness and appreciation for one another and for the moment. My team loves the experience so much that we have Adam come back throughout the year to sit with us. He is pure magic. Adam’s presence sets the tone and permeates the space with a joyful quietude that is both relaxing and uplifting. We all leave the experience feeling reset and nourished. We are so grateful for his supportive presence!!”
— Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee Family Co.
“Adam's tea ceremony for our event was exquisite. It was not only a beautiful aesthetic experience, but also a deeply bonding one for all the participants—and the state that everyone was left in (after many cups of incredible tea) was truly the perfect combination of relaxed and focused for the event's next activities. I would highly recommend the service for teams, workshops, intentional parties, and any other setting where a unique social and meditative experience is called for.”
