Chinese Tea time
Presented by Chinese 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. Many of the steps are simply a way of enjoying the full flavor and aroma.
