The Journey

Guided by a tea sommelier and musicians, you will embark on an immersive journey through all 5 senses, engaging touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste. Not only will you learn the basics of tea tasting, but also how to feel and discern with your other senses. A set of 4 different teas is carefully selected to be paired with 4 movements of Debussy’s Piano Trio, presented by Chamber X Chamber.


The Concept

Tea and classical music are both deeply rooted in cultures, with one originating in the East and the other in the West. They share a profound connection in their admiration for tradition, mindfulness, and sensory appreciation. Both art forms invite us to slow down, savor the moment, and engage our senses fully. 

Hence, this tea tasting x classical music event is crafted to invite you to explore this harmonious fusion of cultures, where the melodies of Debussy resonate alongside the serene elegance of tea, creating an experience that transcends time and place.
