What you'll do

What is Tea and Mindfulness about? What is Mindfulness? Talking slowly or practicing meditation every day... It took me years to learn and realize Mindfulness is a everyday thing that is available for everyone in everyday life.When we are concentrated doing one thing in a day and we are aware of this concentration, we feel complete and happy at the moment. This is Mindfulness. Tea is one of the best ways that helps us to lead to mindfulness in everyday life!

Hello, I am Yuhua Bi, or just call me Bi.

I am a hutong NERD (hutong, magical lanes of Beijing), Mom of two kids, and founder of the Beijing Way Experience. I grew up in Beijing, studied in the U.S., and worked for European companies. My life totally changed after I gave birth to my two girls. I had a valuable opportunity to take time off from my busy life. While exploring hutongs in Beijing, I became fascinated by so many interesting things and amazing people!

I have learned and practiced Tea and Mindfulness in erveryday life with my friends. In the difficult times, it is Tea that enlightens me, warms my heart and gives me a boost to life. Tea is soothing, healing, and powerful and it helps us to lead to mindfulness in everyday life. I sincerely hope to share this magical herbal plant with friends from all over the world.

My husband, daughter (14 years) and I recently had the pleasure of doing the Heartwarming Tea and Mindfulness experience with Yuhua, founder of the Beijing Way Experience. On the website, it was suggesting that the date we wanted was not available, however I messaged Yuhua through the airbnb website and she quickly responded that she could accommodate us for the afternoon we had free. Yuhua provided us with instructions on where to meet, and she was there promptly at the Metro station to take us to the Tea House in a taxi (all included in the price). We arrived in the Tea House and met the Chan Master, James and Mindy, who spoke a little English but Yuhua provided excellent translations when needed. We took our shoes off and were led into the tea room where we sat around a table and had a discussion about tea. We had many questions and Yuhua and James provided us with a fantastic insight into the importance of tea and the ceremony around drinking it. We enjoyed several types of tea, chatting all the time we were drinking. It truly was a fabulous afternoon and we felt quite uplifted by the whole experience. Yuhua is absolutely lovely and highly educated, with a good insight into western living, having studied in the US. Although it was a bit out of the box for my husband and daughter, we all had such a fantastic afternoon and we will never forget our Tea and Mindful Experience. Thank you Yuhua and Chan Master James for such a wonderful afternoon.
