Traditional Chinese tea ceremony
To celebrate the Year of the Dog, Ming Chen Clinic Edinburgh will run a series of special intercultural events introducing the Chinese tea ceremony.
The Chinese tea culture has existed for thousands of years, with a large variety of different teas, each having specific benefits and many different tastes. In our ceremonies, we celebrate special occasions such as the New Lunar Year through green tea, a symbol of Spring. The tea ceremony demonstrates how to make Chinese tea as well as the traditional way of tasting and smelling it. We will also provide information about the cultural importance of Chinese tea. We will sometimes introduce Chinese watercolour painting at our tea ceremonies. Look out for dates of our tea ceremonies here or on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
