Jia Li, a neuroscientist at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the founder of Tea Tell Truth, will lead a Tea Art Retreat in February at Eastover Estate and Eco-Village, in Lenox, Massachusetts. Li hosts tea lectures, tea mindfulness gatherings, and tea parties to help people de-stress.

“My love affair with tea began when I was a child growing up in the mountainous region of Yunnan in China, where tea originated,” Li says. “In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, I believe that spending a few minutes to brew loose tea leaves will help you connect with your inner self. Tea is unlike any beverage, since it has positive effects on one’s mental and physical health. Specifically, my focus is on pu’er tea, which is a high-quality fermented tea from Yunnan. Fermentation significantly improves its health benefits.”

Li’s retreat, which will be held Valentine’s Day weekend, will feature a guided mindfulness meditation with tea to encourage self-reflection, develop mindfulness-based stress-management strategies and promote habit. She will also teach hands-on tea mindfulness (tea brewing and tasting). 

“Relaxing is one kind of mindfulness,” she says. “Sometimes we forget to slow down and take time to enjoy the moment. Downshifting your lifestyle will help you to reach more happiness. This unique tea mindfulness will lead you to open more sensations and find your inner peace as you sip the elixir of the Orient.” 

Location: 430 East St., Lenox, MA. For more information, visit Tea Art Retreat in the Berkshires
