What you'll do

In terms of what to expect, I will be hosting for you a tea tasting in my private tea house. I will serve up to three different teas from my personal collection and can serve decaffeinated varieties upon request. The duration of the session will last for around two hours.

The tea house itself is quite fascinating as it is a dome constructed from nothing more than the earth from my property. The roundness of this structure makes for an organic and very unique experience that you won't find anywhere else. * * In the winter months, guests will be treated to a high efficiency wood burning rocket stove that heats up the bench in which they will sit.
Other things to note
There is parking available in driveway

After being initially captured by my first tea ceremony, I began studying tea in a holistic manner for years and years. In this western society, the subject of tea is not seen as it should be. To me, it is an act of sharing centuries worth of diverse Asian culture all while enjoying a simple pot of tea with others. At this point in my journey, I am ready to share my knowledge of tea. From the growing process, all the way to the harvesting, oxidation and drinking process, I will guide you through this deceivingly simple art.

This was magical. The tea was delicious and the hosts were so kind. I’ve never seen a dime like this, and I don’t think you can experience something like this anywhere else. I thought I knew about tea, but this experience introduced me to a whole new world. A++

Tommy’s tea dome is a unique space for a calming activity like tea tasting. His garden is beautiful and full of little treasures. My very curious 8-year-old and I fully enjoyed our experience.

Tommy was very knowledgeable about tea and the proper way to brew. The setting in the dome tea house was magical and the settings were exceptional. Highly recommend this experience.

This experience was not as good as I expected. I was the only person as the other participants canceled at the last minute. When I arrived Tommy said i would not be tasting as many teas due to their not arriving. In the end I only tasted two teas. I felt like I was being punished for something that was not my fault. The teas were good but I was annoyed that I did not get to taste more teas. If I had known that I would be the only one and would therefore taste less teas I would not have driven the 1.5 hours to get there. I should have been notified with a phone call or a text and I would have rescheduled. I should have been given all the teas to taste whether it was just me or five people. That is what I expected from the experience. There was nowhere where it said I would taste less teas if I was the only one.

We had a great experience! The garden was absolutely gorgeous and we learnt that the Adobe was built by the hosts brother 🤩
