Nanxun-A Wellness Journey into the Tea Lifestyle
Your wellness trip begins as your tea and Chinese culture specialist collects you from the lobby of your Shanghai City-Center hotel. By way of private car, you’ll travel a two hours to Nanxun, a charming water-town where your journey begins with a stroll through one of the many small villages developed along the canals of the Yangtze River delta nearly a millennium ago. Nanxun was built from the profits of wealthy silk merchants who eventually settled in the village towns, bringing with them a western influence. Stunning Ming and Qing dynasty architecture and magnificent gardens are just a few of the sights to see, and will guide your mind to a more tranquil existence. Enjoy a customized lunch comprised of local specialties before beginning your journey into wellness.
In the afternoon, visit the traditionally decorated home of one of our tea specialists, designed with modern elements of fengshui for harmony and balance. Your host will share with you how tea can infuse wellness your life, beginning with Anji Bai, a green tea appreciated for it’s silky smooth mouth feel. You will be taught how to perform your own tea ceremony in a practical and peaceful way, and discuss how it can be used as meditation and healing from the stresses of our hectic lives. Finally, head back to the urban environment once again, fully restored and full of contemplation for what lies ahead.
