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.

I received the « Tea ceremony experience » for Christmas. We had a very good time with Cara. She is lovely and makes sure we are comfortable. Her room is beautifully decorated. It was relaxing and at the same time instructive. We learned a lot about tea, ceremony. We definitely recommend this experience and looking forward the next Tea event with Cara.

Absolutely amazing experience! I would definitely go again and I would fully recommend that you sign up! Cara (who leads it) was wonderful and so nice! It was relaxing, delicious and educational (but in a fun way)! I purchased a tea with my discover nsw points and it helped me sleep so much! Learning about the different kinds of tea ceremonies and how the altitude tea is made was very interesting and I again fully recommend that you go to this experience!

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

It is a great and worthwhile experience.

Can't believe I was Cara's first Class Bento Booking.
She performed her class perfectly incorporating a structure that felt natural, interactive, and valuable all the way through.
Definitely recommend.
