About
Tasting tea and playing qin was a way for ancient China literati to meet together. Maybe you know about Chinese Tea. The tea specialist will give you a brief introduction to the history of tea culture and the tea set.You will taste a famous Chinese tea and learn about tea table etiquette. A short tea art performance will give you a general idea of making tea. Next, the teacher of Guqin will show you the hidden Chinese cultural connotation of the Guqin – a plucked, 7-string musical instrument. With a long history of almost 4,000 years, Guqin is now not quite as popular as other instruments. But you can find inner peace and joy when playing it.
