Hi! My name is Michael Busby. I’m the Tea Pedder here at Via Tiempo, and a long-time Taoist practitioner, tea drinker, and a qigong instructor. I curate a subscription of nourishing seasonal teas finley tuned to the traditional 24 Seasons Chinese farming calendar, which I ship every 6 weeks with guidance for drinking tea and living in a way that cultivates health, simplicity, and seasonal alignment. From within that selection, I offer a seasonal tea menu for people to try a la carte, or to stock up on favorites. In the fall I’ll be unveiling a series of classes that will delve into the philosophy and practice of tea Via Tiempo style.

Clouds and Mist

Our featured green is Clouds and Mist, a luxurious green that is much richer than in year’s past but still maintains it’s ephemeral quality and clean finish. A cooling tea, evocative of grassy meadows, for gongfucha or simply brewed in a glass.

8 Immortals Crossing the Sea

The gongfucha tea of choice for this summer is the 8 Immortals Crossing the Sea Phoenix Oolong. Its fruity citrus notes are evocative of this time of year. Not a cooling tea, it should be enjoyed in the morning before the heat of the day kicks in.
