Our Tea House in Tel Aviv
Our first tea ceremonies were hosted back in 2018 in our home in Florentin, Tel-Aviv, out of a desire to share the unique tea that we source and export from Hong Kong in our seasonal sourcing trips to East Asia. The goal was to introduce the Israeli audience to the traditional Chinese tea culture and build a vibrant local community of tea enthusiasts who are unwilling to compromise on their cup of tea.
Tea Studio in Levinsky Market
After several pop-ups in Tel Aviv and collaborations across the country, in January 2023, we opened our studio in Levinsky Market for the first time, a quiet and hidden tea house, isolated from the market's bustle. The studio is our permanent hosting space, active throughout the year, and entirely dedicated to the art of Gong Fu Cha, the skill set required for steeping and hosting the Chinese tea ceremony. The studio space has been designed with attention to the smallest details, and includes authentic furniture and equipment, the highest level of water filtration, professional tea literature, and handmade ceremonial teaware.
The dynamic essence of the studio offers a constantly evolving, seasonal event schedule. During weekdays, the studio functions as a self-hosting tea house (by advance booking), and in the evenings, it serves as a workshop center for lectures, tea tastings, and private events. Following the tradition that began at our home in Florentin, we open our studio every Friday to the public, without the need of advanced booking, and free of charge.
