About
If you are a tea lover and seeking an introduction to fine Chinese teas, you should try this experience. Tea plays a different role in different societies but there is one thing in common. It connects you with the nature which in turn helps you to take a break from everything else. In China, tea has been traditionally drunk as a medicine. Also, monks drink tea to support their meditation practices. Chinese teas are rich in variety, distinctive in taste and prepared in Gongfu style. This name is given to the traditional Chinese tea ceremony to emphasize the effort and practice that takes to master it. For this reason, tea steeping is also considered a form of art. This ceremony will be led by a certified tea sommelier who will conduct the ceremony without giving prior information pre-testing. Further to tasting, you will have a chance to discuss the tea and your experience with it. Finally, you will be given information about the tea, its origin, properties and steeping technique.
