Workshop - Tea Ceremony


2022- Tea Ceremony Workshop with Martin teaching at the MMU University.

Chinese people love drinking green tea and sharing it with friends and family; they even enjoy it alone. Tea plays a very important role in the daily life of Chinese people. Drinking tea not only quenches one’s thirst but dispels fatigue and is beneficial to one’s health.

2022 Students at Tea Ceremony Workshop at the MMU University.

History of Chinese Tea  

More than 2,000 years ago, the Chinese started using tea as a medicine and gradually developed it into their daily drinking. The Chinese people were the first to learn how to grow tea bushes and develop different techniques and skills to process and dry the tea leaves. They use the leaves to produce various types of tea.

Our teacher will show students the different types of tea

There are many ways to make tea, including black tea, green tea, red tea, scented tea with flowers, oolong tea, tuo tea (bowl-shaped tea briquettes) and brick tea.  Chinese people are the master of the tea ceremony. In order to obtain the traditional perfect flavour, tea must be stir-fried by hand.
