春日饮茶去。The tea art event.
As the spring approaching, everyone has put away their tiredness from the winter, and ready to meet a brand new life. In a sunny and easeful morning, sitting in a cozy room and drinking tea could be the most pleasing thing in spring.
That was what we did last Saturday! Students from XMandarin went to a tea house near the school. We watched the Tea art show, tasted Chinese tea , spent a relaxing morning together.
The tea art teacher prepared 3 different tea for us: white tea, oolong tea, and puer tea. Students who joined this event were lucky XD
The teacher also introduced the history and tips about these tea.
White tea is an ancient type of tea. It was once a rare and treasured tea reserved. It is made from the same tea
plant, Camellia sinensis, used to make green and black teas, but uses special white tea varieties, and is minimally processed.
Oolong tea is one of the most distinctive tea categories in China. Oolong tea is a kind of tea with excellent quality, which is produced by the processes of de - enzyming, withering carving, rocking green, semi - fermentation,and baking.
Pu 'er tea is mainly produced in Xishuangbanna, Pu 'er and other areas in Yunnan province. its drinking methods are rich, which can be drunk both clearly and mixed. Pu 'er tea tea soup orange thick, high sharp lasting aroma, unique flavor, strong taste alcohol, durable bubble.
And the teacher showed how to "make" tea with puer tea.
We were eager for new knowledge!
Our activity today is over in laughter. The students learned new knowledge and gained new cultural experience.
But we won't stop learing.
Every month XMandarin hosts activities like this for foreigners in Qingdao and we would love that you come and join us!
