We offer a wide range of experiences, some of which are best enjoyed when you are less experienced in the world of authentic tea, while others are perfect for someone looking for a deep dive. Here you will find a description of each of them.
Pin Cha translates from Mandarin as "to taste tea", and you can do exactly that at our Tea Culture Club in Amsterdam! You will choose a tea from our collection together with one of our tea guide, and he or she will show you how to brew that tea the best way.
After choosing a tea, your tea guide will show you our 3 ceremony rooms and after taking a seat on the comfortable carpet, you will have time to enjoy the taste, smell and aesthetics of the tea ceremony.
The tea guide will be with you for 20-30 minutes to tell you all about the culture, mythology and the best way to enjoy your chosen tea. After this introduction, you will know how to prepare tea with the Gong Fu method and you will be able to enjoy the company of your guests while brewing your own tea.

Gong Fu Cha:
The gongfu tea ceremony or kung fu tea ceremony (Chinese: 工夫茶 or 功夫茶), is a kind of Chinese tea ceremony, involving the ritual preparation and presentation of tea. The term literally means "making tea with skill".
Gongfu tea is a traditional way of preparing tea, characterised by multiple infusions of the same tea in a small teapot. This way of brewing is originated from Chaozhou during the Song Dynasty, which is why it's also often referred to as 'Chaozhou Gongfu Cha'.
This experience is one which won't be forgotten soon.
Our Gong Fu Cha Ceremonies are only lead by Senior Tea Guides, meaning you will get an extensive deep dive into the culture of tea with more depth than is customary in a Pin Cha. You can let the tea guide take you one a 1-hour long journey to explore all of your 5 senses, or you can use this opportunity to ask questions and steer the experience yourself.
This experience is a great fit for tea lovers who would like to indulge themselves in an amazing tea experience, or for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge about the authentic art of making tea in the Gong Fu way.
