Schedule and Fee’s


ITFA wants to make this opportunity as affordable as possible. As such, we require no payment for the workshops themselves are free to attend for everyone. We do require a definitive number of participants for the tea tastings, as we need to determine how much tea to bring.

All we ask in return for our service is a basic, economy class flight to your destination, and accommodations for our tea master (this can be in the organizers home, hotel or motel)

We will also provide Skype lectures.

Tea Brings Us Together

Yesterday we had to say goodbye to all our new tea friends we made at the Inaugural World Tea Farms Festival in Wazuka. Tea farmers from Indonesia, Taiwan, India, Korea, and all over Japan joined us to make friends over a cup of tea. There were laughing children, friendly dogs, tea-inspired food, and so much love in the environment. We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better crowd. For those of you that joined us, we hope you enjoyed and for those that could not we look forward to making more events just like this. Our ultimate goal is to spread these meet”tea”ings all around the world so we can connect over tea and find world peace.
