Insight Tea Arts is a collaboration between a group of experts dedicated to sharing their joy of tea as a means to build community and spread tea culture.
We collectively specialize in both Gong Fu tea and Western style brewing. Each member's background is varied, across the wide range of teas, through many types of clay, and each passion informs the other.
Tea brings people together. Friends, families, and communities form around the tea board, creating an inclusive and deeply personal space where the stress of the outside world dissolves into the cup.
Tea reminds us to focus on the present moment.
