Join us for an evening of taste bud tingling as we test out some delicious teas and snacks from around the world! 

The Tao of Tea offers a wide variety of specialty teas as well herbs and blends, and their focus has always been on sourcing the best tea leaves (camellia sinensis) possible with sustainability and social responsibility in mind. Care for the soil and tea plants must be coupled with recognition and sustainability of surrounding ecosystems. The genesis of tea plants was in naturally occurring tea forests where bio-diversity creates rich flavor. They are proud to be among the leading group of companies to offer certified organic teas, and they seek to raise awareness for sustainable tea farming methods. They were also among the first group of tea companies to join the Fair Trade movement in the United States, and they pledge actions that better people’s lives through a healthy environment and a future for children. They purchase many of their teas at above-market prices and raise social premiums for tea communities.

They prepare their teas per old-style methods, approaches that vary with the landscape and few remain committed to the raw form of tea spirit. All of their products are a result of establishing relationships with tea people. Along the way, there is also a sharing and appreciation of various tea cultures. They invite you to join them in promoting the art of tea at its highest level and sharing the traditions, cultures, and flavors that enhance our understanding of each other.

 

C.U.L.T., A text-speak acronym for "C U Last Tuesday", is a monthly program put on by the Young Professionals of WorldOregon. The theme and format of the event changes from month to month, but what doesn't vary is the promise to entertain, educate, and broaden your horizons. Invite your friends and we'll see you on the last Tuesday of each month!
