A tea revolution is on the rise and with it brews anticipation for the upcoming pop-up from zigzag teas, featuring a range of loose leaf teas from the brand’s collections: Pure, Plant and Signature. Found in the new spaces at Old Street tube station, you’ll see a stark contrast between the everyday hustle and bustle of London life, which is reflected in the industrious block concrete walls, and the raw, organic feel of the products and culture rich experiences on offer. A series of evening events are taking place in the station where we invite you to learn more about ancient tea practices and how we can use these traditions for our own wellbeing in the modern world.
The final event in the series, join us in a multi-sensory experience in a serving of the finest Oolong by Prabhasvara (Nick from The Living Tea), followed by an immersive gong sound bath by Ladryhn.
Nick is passionate about introducing you to pure teas from Ancient trees as Medicine to restore balance in your life. He will be performing a traditional tea ceremony 'Gong Fu' meaning 'Mastery'. For this style of brewing Tea we learn to become more sensitive to the different aspects of the brewing process and how they effect the Tea experience. We consider different water qualities, temperature, steeping time, amount & type of leaf, and - most importantly, perhaps - the energy of the one that brews. For this style Tea Ceremony we use smaller cups and drink lighter, more ethereal Teas like Oolongs & Green Teas, experiencing a more subtle Qi in the higher energy centres.
Ladrhyn has been working in the field of consciousness over 10 years. His experience has come from a broad range of spiritual/holistic therapies. Including Reiki, hands on healing, distant healing, sound healing and channelled healing. His goal is to host sacred space for people to journey. Gong Baths are based on the concepts and laws of quantum physics and use the scientific principles of vibration and resonance to instill a natural state of equilibrium. You will be bathed in sound while you lay back and relax in the harmonious sounds awakening into a refreshed state of mind and being.
