Pricing is per person, and each session requires two attendees minimum. Our Virtual Tea Tastings are a wonderful way to learn more about how to brew, taste, and appreciate a variety of specialty teas and/or tisanes. Tea drinkers of all levels are welcome, including those who are new to tea. Each tasting lasts about fifty minutes.

At PARU, our teas are sourced directly from single-origin farms, crafted by artisan blenders, or hand-blended in the PARU Tea Lab. Our team has been hosting tea tasting in person and online since 2017, and the options below have been our most popular requests. We've included teaware with each option so that you can confidently brew tea in the same way that we demonstrate it. If you'd prefer to provide your own teaware, you're more than welcome to book the "Tea Only" option.

To book a tasting, select your preferred theme from the dropdown (details for each are below). After your purchase, a tea-m member will reach out to you within one business day with potential dates (will be at least two weeks from purchase date to allow time for shipping). If you are interested in an exact time and date, please reach out to us for availability first, and we will do our best to accommodate.

For a virtual tasting session of 10 people or more, please contact us at hello@paruteabar.com.

Gong Fu Tea Tasting ($153 value)

Our method is inspired by both chado or sado ("the way of tea"), or traditional Japanese tea ceremony, and modern matcha preparation but we've left plenty of room for you to personalize according to your personal preference. Each participant will receive a hand-made katakuchi made exclusively for PARU by our friends at MAEK Ceramics.
