Altitude Tea

Altitude Tea 5.0 (19)

Hi there I'm Cara, the founder of Altitude Tea. I started this tea brand in Sydney in 2014. I've been a life long tea drinker obsessed about tea quality, taste and getting the tea ceremony part down to a fine art. I have sampled over 1,000 varieties of tea during my life time from all corners of the world and I would like to share with with you the best of the best. Real quality rare and exotic teas that you can't find on supermarket shelves and how you reach a peaceful state of mind through a tea ceremony experience.

Mindful Tea Ceremony Experience

We had a lovely evening tea ceremony experience. Cara's calming presence and the crystal singing bowl set us on the path for a mindful journey. Cara is very knowledgable about tea, and it was fascinating to learn about different varieties, the tea ceremony process, as well as tasting them. The setting was beautiful - intimate and relaxing I really enjoyed the evening - thank you Cara!

Cara was a fantastic host. Her in-depth knowledge of all things tea in addition to her calm and patient demeanour made the experience both educational and relaxing. The tea itself was delicious and the variety we experienced across oolong/green/herbal was great and helped us to draw out the differences. Cara's venue was wonderfully set up and is great for a small group. I would recommend allowing a bit more time to find parking as Waterloo can be quite busy!

Surrender to the present moment. Cara’s tea ceremony experience is mind-blowing and nourishing to both body and spirit. At a knowledge level, you learn so much on the oriental tea culture, its origin, development and contemporary practice. At a taste level, you get to try different tea flavours and their unique aroma. At a spirit level, the sound of the crystal singing bowl brings you tranquillity. The meditative movements of brewing the tea, every step is filled with consciousness. This would be a perfect gift class to groups of people who would  + more

The mindful tea ceremony with Cara was such a calming and fun experience. The singing bowl was a beautiful way to start, followed by us sharing a variety of different teas. Cara is so knowledgeable about tea, its history, how it's grown and its benefits. She taught us how to be present in the moment, appreciating the tea's aroma and taste, and clearing the mind. I would recommend this experience to anyone, especially if you enjoy tea! - Emily

Mindful Tea Ceremony Experience

The tea ceremony I had with Cara was wonderful. If you're looking to try something new I definitely recommend it. I left feeling completely different to how I normally do, just at peace with everything going on and present in the moment. It something you must experience to truly understand. It gives you something you can take away and use to your advantage in life and it also gives a great insight into Chinese tea history/culture. Go alone or bring some friends or family, you'll have an awesome time. Thanks again Cara!

It was great experience. Kara provide various variety of tea leaves samples that you may never see in the market. Also combinations of floral and tea leaves and lemon grass makes tea flavour more interesting. It is a great and worthwhile experience.
