A New Tea Center

I study, volunteer and live at a tea center in Taiwan. It’s known as Tea Sage Hut, and known for Global Tea Hut and The Leaf Magazine.

At Tea Sage Hut, we host tea lovers from around the world. Together, we drink tea and learn from the spirit of tea that is sometimes talked about in association with tea ceremonies, but too often forgotten about as people focus on the surface aspects of tea (i.e., price and flavor) alone. After much time traveling the world to learn about tea, I found that I can learn most deeply about tea here, and I am thrilled to be able to help visitors learn through their time here, and readers learn through our publications.

In the time since I arrived to live in Taiwan, the number of visitors and subscribers has been rapidly growing. Soon, Tea Sage Hut will be expanding to reach more people. And we were recently donated a huge asset in this plan — a pristine piece of land in the mountains of Taiwan.

Two students walk through the mountainous land for our new tea center.

This is the land that has been donated for our new tea center. It has a waterfall, a cliff and enough room for housing, a meditation center and organic tea farming and tea production.

We’re putting all the pieces together to make an incredible tea center based purely on donations, one where people can visit free of charge to learn about tea in a deeper, more sustainable way. I’ll be posting more on this as the project develops, but in the meantime, I just want to send out thanks for everyone who is helping, be it in donations or in emotional support or in any other way. Thank you all for helping make this dream a reality!
