« WAO » stands for « We Are One »

Since 2010, Jade has been traveling the world to explore the wisdom and medicine of the plant Camellia sinensis, a sacred tree, a plant teacher that has inspired the Taoists and Sages for health, longevity and meditation. She founded the project WAO TEA in 2017, dedicated to the essential dance existing between tea culture and Nature itself.

Tea is wisdom in a cup, and a gift from Nature. 
Behind the leaves, the intention of WAOTEA is to awaken and empower conscious relationship with Nature and all there is. We believe that most of our challenges in life comes from a sensation of disconnection.
-
By drinking tea, we are being reminded that we are one with Nature,
and all of the elements before us, within us and beyond us.
One pure living presence.
-
Sitting for tea is an invitation to celebrate the present moment.

-
During her extensive travels to China, Malaysia and Japan, Jade had the chance to study the practice, story and rituals of tea - through the lens of tea farmers and various teachers, growing, tending, harvesting & honoring the tea plant.
-
-
Jade consciously select and curate her tea leaves directly from conscious tea farmers, in the most remote and sacred tea regions, where tea leaves are cultivated and harvested in a traditional way, with love and respect for nature,
its way, and the people involved in the process.

May this cup of tea allow you to remember the way of nature, 
in a conscious act of reverence, and gratitude.
