Introduction to Tea Culture Market tour and Tea Ceremony
The essence of Chinese tea culture is the tea ceremony, or cha dao. Narrated by your certified tea expert and performed by our lovely tea hostess in traditional clothing, enjoy a private, 30 minute eloquent and artistic ceremony of two teas prepared in different types of teaware. Afterwards, peruse a wholesale tea market where your certified tea expert will introduce you through a multi-sensory experience. You’ll learn about the different categories of teas, examine and identify them by leaf, and discover which teas are suited to your taste. As you sample, your certified tea expert will facilitate conversation between you and the vendors as you hear their personal stories and learn of each tea’s characteristics and health benefits. This immersive experience will have you walk away fully enlightened.
