About Claudia

 

In March 2012, Claudia stumbled into a small tea shop tucked in a back alley in Guilin, a picturesque city in southern China. It was a serendipitous encounter and the beginning of a life-long passion for tea and dedication to practicing the way of tea. In 2016, she met her Japanese tea ceremony sensei, Akiko Ozaki Tatko, and started practicing Chado, or Japanese Tea Ceremony, in the Urasenke tradition. In the summer of 2019, another chance encounter brought her to the Wenshu Monastery in Chengdu, the largest zen monastery in South-West China, where she was accepted as a tea apprentice. Since 2021, Claudia has been holding tea ceremonies at the annual Shaolin Cultural Week in Vienna and studying Chinese tea.
