« Jade's course transformed my experience of sitting with tea. Her knowledge is vast, and her teaching emanates from the heart. To be able to learn about the origins, philosophies and practices surrounding tea through the act of sitting is  a gift. The six chapters are beyond a course: They provide a container for being. »

«  I have to say that even if I took my entire course Online from Zoom I could feel the love & respect Jade has for tea and for her students. I will never forget the taste of my first sip. And I will never forget how I felt. Thank you for introducing me to an essential part of my daily practice. Thank you for reminding me the importance to be fully present. I can’t wait to share your knowledge with my clients, my friends, and my family. I’ve been offering your tea after every practice at the studio and my clients are crazy for your tea. Vesta was a bestseller last winter. I can’t wait to receive the new teas and especially share my love affair with Tea Ceremony. Merci mille fois pour tout.  »

« Jade is the true embodiment of Tea Spirit and Tea teachings. I could not be more honored and grateful to have had Jade and Wao Tea to help open up this beautiful practice of Cha Dao for me. If you’re interested or curious at all about incorporating Tea into your life I would highly recommend Jade and her soft, gentle, accessible energy and approach. I felt so safe and seen the entire length of the program and still do. Infinite blessings for this path, the journey, and the lovely connections that Tea has already been bringing into my life. »

« Having just completed the 1:1 Tea Course with Jade, I write this testimonial with my heart bursting with gratitude. After reaching out to Jade and stating my interest, I was enrolled in the course and had received my package of sample tea within a week. The first four chapters we did via Zoom and the last two were in person. I traveled from Boston to Northern California as a beautiful getaway which was only made more enchanted by getting to meet Jade in person.  She is radiant and glowing, and teaches from such a calm, wise, and compassionate place. Jade was flexible with her schedule and we were able to have one in person chapter in her tea room and the other by the sea. Before this course I had a simple daily tea practice with no tea ware. I was completely overwhelmed and Jade helped me select the perfect pot + cups based around my needs. She even had tea carrying bags made to the color I requested! I felt completely supported in this exploration and am grateful to Jade who went above and beyond in every sense. I now posses knowledge of the history of the leaf, types and different preparations, ceremonial foundations, and outdoor/on-location tea serving. I appreciate how Jade weaves in modern practicality with ancient wisdom, how she intertwines minimalism and spirituality. If you are looking for a course certificate to give you validation, this is not the course for you. If you are looking for an opportunity to experience the leaf from a different perspective, to have a meditative emersion—this is the course for you! »

« The Way of Tea course with Jade, was not only a portal for deeper self transformation  but also a re-encounter with a sacred practice that I had paused for more than 8 years.  The classes, meditations, mastery and guidance received were truly harmonious, heart expanding and humbling for my mind. Each teaching a precious life lesson. Each lesson flavored with the Divine.  I will continue to honor the path and sacred teachings and blessings that The Way of  tea brings  to our world, and will continue to share its precious gifts with my students, in my business, with my family, friends and with my own soul. »

« The way of tea was an inspirational, transformative experience that has lead me to a new mindfulness tool and perspective. Jade is a comforting and compassionate guide, rich in knowledge & wisdom. Each session felt like a gift, both the information & the tea itself brought me new insights. I can’t wait to continue to learn from & grow with this practice & plant medicine. »

« Jade ~ thank you for sharing 6 wonderful mornings sharing your tea wisdom so intimately with me.  Your generosity in both knowledge & spirit carried me though one of life's greatest hurdles & for that I am forever grateful.  My kitty Poppy joined every session (on her own terms) which highlighted the intuitiveness & connection between plant & animal.  Thank you for your grounding & kind teachings which will carry me through my tea journey. Love & blessings. »
