Hi friends. I offer a tea(m) building experience here in Los Angeles and have partners in London that I host for as well. A bit of context: I’ve been studying and practicing Gongfu Cha traditional Taiwanese tea ceremony since 2009. As a freelance UX strategist I noticed 3 years ago at an on-site job in a startup incubator (where soylent installed a fridge and kept it stocked) that when I offered to pour tea on Tuesday afternoons I would attract hardware engineers and CEOs to the table to unwind from the unhealthy schedule and calendar of the incubator. This turned into the service I offer today. It’s been a profound experience to offer as a team building service as well as just a mini in-office retreat to have an immersive experience allow for people to unplug for their devices and productivity cycles for 60-90 min. See www.imagesoftea.xyz/teambuilding to learn more.
That’s awesome, @adamyasmin . Can you share more about how you compose the flow of your ceremony for teams? For example, I’m curious about balancing structured activity/focus/conversation and unstructured emptiness/silence.
