Where you'll be

Our tasting happens in a peaceful teahouse designed by Fu-Tung Cheng. A skylight environment with sustainable bamboo cabinetry, raked plaster walls, and hand-made glazed porcelain tiles, surrounding a 10 ft circular concrete tea-sampling bar, cast in a single pour and embedded with semi-precious gemstones and fossils.
