#WellbeingWeekInLaw: Teatime with Art of Tea
May 6, 2021 @ 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm
For day #4 of #WellbeingWeekInLaw, we turn our attention to our social well-being by taking some time to virtually join colleagues for an interactive tea tasting.
Did you know that all tea comes from the same evergreen plant? Or that the phrase ‘herbal tea’ is an oxymoron?
Steve Schwartz is a Master Tea Blender and the Founder of Art of Tea, a hand-crafted tea purveyor based in Los Angeles. By combining herbs and botanicals to create unique wellness and flavor profiles, Steve and his team have been able to build an explosive brand which has garnered national acclaim and awards. In this workshop, Steve will take you through a brief history of tea, what differentiates the different tea types when all tea comes from the same plant, why steep time and temperature matter when making the perfect cup of tea, and so much more. You will come out of this class one step closer to becoming a tea master!

WWIL is an event of the Institute for Well-Being in Law (IWIL) which aims to raise awareness about mental health and encourage action and innovation across the profession to improve well-being. CLA’s Health and Wellness Committee participated in this effort last year and is continuing the tradition. In 2021, the event’s name was changed from “Lawyer Well-Being Week” to WWIL to be more explicitly inclusive of all the important contributors to the legal profession who are not lawyers.
Join the CLA’s HWC this year for a live virtual event or activity every day of #WellbeingWeekInLaw in alignment with the daily themes set by IWIL:
- Monday, 05/03: Stay Strong
- Tuesday, 05/04: Align
