Tea Ritual and Ceremony Class
Time & Location
About the Event
We will join Janny Chyn from Shanghai Pathways for an authentic experience in tea. Chinese tea culture refers to the methods of preparation of tea, the equipment used to make tea, and the occasions in which tea is consumed in China. Quality Chinese teas are calming and have the ability to shift us into deeper, more profound states of awareness. They also have flavor and aroma profiles that are beyond belief. These are not like ANY teas you have had before! Brewing tea is an art that is simple to learn, yet one can work on it for a lifetime and never know all its secrets. Instruction will include learning about teaware and techniques that will open up many new dimensions of the tea experience for you. The class is designed to introduce the various types of Chinese tea, the use of the tea set and implements, and proper storage of tea leaves. We will learn various methods to make oolong tea, white tea, and Pu'er tea, as well as traditional tea culture. We will also understand how water, time, temperature, teaware, and your own state affect your ability to bring each tea to its fullest life. Of course, we will drink amazing rare teas also.
