MFA Design, UC Davis
Harold Linde designs and curates Immersive Tea Experiences (I.T.E.) to inspire greater presence, connection and awe for diverse participants.
He has created and facilitated immersive tea experiences at TEDxUCLA, TEDxVeniceBeach, BlueMind Malibu, Summit LA17 and Summit LA18. He completed construction on the dedicated tea space TEA STUDIO #202 on the UC Davis campus in January 2019.
Harold has studied tea ceremony in Miaoli, Taiwan and completed multiple tea-focused workshops and trainings through Global Tea Hut, World Tea Expo and the UC Davis Global Tea Initiative.
He views contemporary tea ritual as a beneficial, humanistic technology to counter-balance our collective oversaturation of digital technology/virtual-based realities and foster greater wonder in everyday experiences.
