Garden to Gaiwan

The name simply came to us some years ago and we have used it ever since. Garden to Gaiwan is our farm-to-table approach to tea. Ensuring optimal transparency in every infusion is no easy task. We are committed to what you are drinking.

Theasophie has presented in a variety of settings including private homes, teahouses, museums, universities, and botanical gardens throughout the United States and China. We offer brewing service for individuals, gatherings, private and public events. Garden to Gaiwan is our series of educational events curated to convey a deep sense of the ecology, history, culture, and practice of tea. Events unite the sensory appreciation of particular teas with the given topics in a very unique manner. Presentation topics violate disciplinary boundaries to consider tea from multiple perspectives, including: environmental & human health; social and ritual practice; spiritual ecology.

茶的滋味是人情味

The true flavor of tea is the flavor of human association.


While human connection is at the heart of tea practice, the current health crisis has prevented us from offering public brewing service. Theasophie is only now beginning to consider small, socially appropriate brewing requests. Feel free to reach out and share your thoughts with us!
