Chai Tea Ceremony and Workshop

with Prati Bhatt

Saturday 17 July 2021

You are invited to join Prati Bhatt for a Winter's warming afternoon of tea tasting, learning and ceremony, the only one of its kind outside of India. Come with a curious mind to sample and savour the essence of masala chai tea - and how it is grown, selected, brewed and served - in the unique Indian way, with nourishing spices and milk.

In India, pots of chai tea are created and offered, day and night, by the 'chai wallah' street vendors and housewives in every city and village. All those who create chai have one thing in common: they are merged with their task and have love in their hearts.

Tea connects us to our memories. We trace back sounds, music, conversations, family, friends, happiness and more.

Making chai is like performing a meditation, and touches all aspects of life.

While brewing you are inhaling the most exotic aromas, merging with your purpose, your Ikigai. You have love in your heart. You are well grounded. You are touching and feeling all the elements of the earth that are nourishing for your mind, body and soul. And you are sipping a drink from the Gods that warms up your very soul.

This afternoon will include:

  • An introduction to tea - its flavours, healing properties and elements;
  • The magic of two chai brewings (dairy and non-dairy options) in a 30-minute meditative ritual;
  • Around the table tastings, conversation, question and answers;
  • Serving of nibbles to clear the palate; and
  • A goodie gift bag with Teaphoria teas and recipe cards.

About Prati  

Prati is the founder of Teaphoria, having studied under her beloved Tea Master for many years in India. She shares this story:

"After a long journey of trying to find that perfect cup of tea was coming to an exhausting end, I met my Tea Master who had formally worked with many reputable tea firms. Every day after our practice session and tasting over 200 cups of tea just to create “one” perfect blend, he still had a child-like excitement and smile on his face. He would say 'Prati, There is just so much to learn and wish I had 40 more years for it”.

And so Prati's inspiration for the creation of Teaphoria was born.

Teaphoria is created based on four simple principles: emotions, inspiration, passion and the ultimate experience. They offer a range of beautifully and uniquely blended aromatic and therapeutic teas including: masala chai; green; tumeric detox and tulsi.
