Event Details

Drop in for Chinese tea and conversation about Chinese tea culture with language instructors Ying Petersen and Jessica Chen.

Tea is part of every Chinese family’s daily life.  Although the Chinese tea ceremony varies from location to location, and can even vary for differing types of tea.  Most ceremonies tend to follow a similar pattern involving the same brewing techniques.  While to outsiders it may seem complex, many of the steps are simply a way of enjoying the full flavor, aroma and appearance of the tea.

Part of Asian Food Week. Presented by the Humanities Commons.
