What you'll do

Join Jesus Chaidez, local tea expert, for an afternoon of tea tasting at his tea bar in the fashion district. We will sample signature teas from around the world and learn about their history and the best ways to brew them. You will get an introduction to loose leaf tea and different brewing methods that will improve the way you brew tea at home. We will explore brewing tea in the "gong fu cha" method using special "yixing" tea pots and gaiwans. Our beautiful tea bar has several teas in stock that we will use to tell the story of tea. We will also sample some of our own special blends that we've developed here at our tea bar that we use to dye some of our organic garments with.
In order to sit quietly at peace with your tea I feel its essential to understand it first. Where is it from? How was it fired? Whats the best brewing method for this particular tea? I can't promise you, you will become an expert in 2 hours but I will try to demystify the world of loose leaf tea and make it more accessible by walking you through its rich history.

Over 15 years of dedication to the way of tea. I started my tea journey while living in San Francisco, it was there that I had the privilege of working and studying for six years under Tea Master Roy Fong ,and his wife Grace, at Imperial Tea Court, it was there that I developed my gon fu , and my appreciation for tea culture. I was in San Francisco getting my BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, I'm a painter by trade and have developed and appreciation for how tea culture and art culture overlap. Currently part of a collective space and an organic clothing line that incorporates tea into the dying process. I really enjoy tea history and art history.

Wonderful experience! Not only did we taste great tea, learned about tea history and ways to brew and enjoy but it was also in a cool space shared with other artist so we could see what's created there. Jesus was very accommodating and communication was prompt and easy - would definitely recommend this experience to any tea lover, those who want to learn more about it and those who are just looking to explore and enhance their visit to LA.

This experience was unique and well worth it, especially for those who have limited knowledge on various teas. The teas we sampled were very good. Jesus was friendly and welcoming. He was extremely knowledgable and open to answering any and all questions we had. I highly recommend attending!

Jesus was so knowledgeable about tea, personable in connecting with us, and accommodating to our friend that is pregnant. He went above and beyond, and had such a genuine authenticity to him. Highly, highly recommend! The location is hard to identify- if you see Spandex you’re right next door- he has to open a gate to park your car inside. Don’t be intimidated by the location, just be aware.
