Ticket Prices (What’s this?)

By purchasing your ticket, you agree to the following:
After registration closes, I’ll send your ticket and event info to the email address you submit using the form below.
I do this personally; it is not an automated process. I will not use any information you submit for other purposes, unless you give me permission to do so in the form. Thank you!

Did you read and understand the Things To Know and Registration Terms sections below?(required)

Would you like to receive email updates about future PDX TEA events?(required)

Things To Know:

  • For every PDX TEA event, please keep yourself as free as possible from any fragrances, including “natural” fragrances. :)
  • To keep your palate clear, I suggest avoiding dairy the day of the event.
  • I also suggest avoiding any toothpaste containing SLS — sodium laurel/laureth sulfate. (SLS can temporarily suppress your ability to perceive sweetness.)
  • I’ll provide a special place for you to put your cell phone during the event. (You’re welcome to take notes on paper, and pictures before and after.)
  • The PDX TEA Room is a shoes-off environment.

Registration Terms:

I create PDX TEA events with great love and attention, through many hours of research, practice, and preparation; procurement of tea, production of materials, printing of handouts, planning of dog care, and so on. The following guidelines help me maintain the high standard of your experience, and the sustainability of my organization:

  1. All events are pre-registration only. (No at-the-door ticket sales.)
  2. Registration ends 48 hours before the event’s start time.
  3. If you want to register, but the cutoff time has passed, please contact me directly by text message, as soon as possible, at (971) 258-2832. (Yes, that’s 971 Club Tea. :)
  4. Each event has a maximum of 7 guests, and a minimum of 3 guests.
  5. If an event does not have 3 guests registered by the time registration ends, I may choose to reschedule or cancel the event. (If I cancel it, I will promptly refund you your money via PayPal.)
Thank you so much for understanding the importance of these considerations!


About The Event

Sichuan’s Méng Dǐng (蒙頂) holds a legitimate claim to the title of the origination point for tea cultivation, with the first records of cultivated tea on that peak dating to the 50s, B.C.E.

My long-time tea friend and traveling companion, Chloé Womack, recently spent two months at Wenshuyuan Monastery, Chengdu, studying the particularities of Sichuan’s epic tea culture. We’re very fortunate to welcome her back to PDX TEA, where she’ll share some of the fruits of the instruction she received there.

She’ll prepare two classic teas of Sichuan, both of which she (personally!) handcrafted at Wenshuyuan Monastery, while studying under Master Yì Zhì (亦智法師): Méng Dǐng Gānlù (蒙頂甘露), and Méng Dǐng Huángyá (蒙頂黃芽).

She’ll share her first-hand understanding of the production of these teas, as well as what she’s learned and observed about the current and historical traditions of Sichuan Tea Culture.

We hope you can join us for this incredibly special opportunity!
