Experience the Zen of tea. Become informed about the function of tea in East Asian social interactions and the many benefits of tea. Engage in the ritual of tea handling, tea ware, and proper tea making using Chinese tea sets. Like wine connoisseurs, discuss tea colors, aroma, and taste.
An ounce of exquisite and expensive tea can easily outprice an ounce of gold. Appreciate the basics in purchasing quality Chinese tea and the aromatic experience of engaging the spirit, stimulating invisible energy, and producing relaxation.
One of the many benefits of the tea ceremony is that it is a meditative, regenerative, and relationship building process.
In participating in the tea ceremony, drink the tea with purpose. Share in the traditional ceremony while you find out how to serve tea with grace and respect. Chinese tea and a non-caffeinated tea option will be served. If this class will only be on Zoom, please purchase loose leaf Jasmine tea to use during class.
Because of the current situation with the coronavirus, this course is available on Zoom and/or at Infinity if conditions improve and allow it. You will be emailed a link after you register to watch and participate in the class on Zoom.
