Chinese Tea Appreciation Class
A Chinese tea cup may look small, but it holds a great deal more than just tea and water. As our tea experts will explain, every sip contains the distillation of thousands of years of Chinese culture. In this tasty journey into the intricate rituals of Chinese tea drinking, you’ll begin at a cosy teahouse called Lock Cha, which translates as ‘a pleasure of tea ’. Next door in Hong Kong Park you’ll find the Museum of Tea Ware inside Flagstaff House, where you can peruse a collection of beautiful and rare teapots. Throughout the class you’ll be introduced to the many varieties of tea, its proper preparation in China and tea drinking etiquette. Overall, find out for yourself why the ancient saying holds true: ‘Life is like tea. The longer it steeps, the richer it becomes.’
