The true taste of tea is
that of human association.

Theasophie is a collaboration between nature and humanity, oral and written, myth and history, individuals and communities, actions and ideas. Our roots penetrate deep into the soils of Yunnan's tea gardens and are cultivated by a multiethnic community of tea farmers, each of whose languages, knowledge systems, and worldviews are what ethnobotanist Wade Davis refers to as old growth forests of the mind.

We have nurtured relationships with artists, photographers & poets, ritual specialists & monks, and tea culture personalities for nearly two decades.  Among our scholarly collaborators are regional specialists in agroforestry, ethnic studies, Theravada Buddhism, and visual anthropology. We look forward to bringing our experience of the tea mountains to you!

Theasophie welcomes individuals and organizations of diverse disciplines who would like to contribute to our effort in arriving at a deeper understanding of the tea complex. If you have translation, bookmaking, printing & graphic design, or other specialized expertise, or would like to contribute written or multimedia material, we would love to hear from you. Contact us for submission guidelines and to discuss how we might work together.
