Join artist Lam Wong for a tea ceremony and dialogue in the Garden. Sit around the tea table; experience the unique notes of Oolong and Pu Erh; and immerse yourself in conversation, flowing from tea and art to eastern philosophy and culture.

Lam Wong is a visual artist, curator, designer and enthusiast of eastern philosophies whose family background has revolved around the art of tea for over 15 generations. Continuing these traditions of Chinese style tea ceremony (Gong Fu Cha) and tea meditation, guests are invited to participate in aesthetic dialogues through spiritual and cultural communion. The journey moves from light to dark tea, alternating between periods of reflection, appreciation, and discussion.
