To celebrate the Year of the Dog, Ming Chen Clinic Edinburgh is launching 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 first ceremony, we are celebrating the New Lunar Year through green tea, a symbol of Spring. The tea ceremony will demonstrate how to make green tea as well as the traditional way of tasting and smelling it. We will also discuss the cultural importance behind Chinese tea. As an added bonus, we will introduce Chinese water colour painting!
Our first ceremony will be held in April at Ming Chen Clinic Edinburgh featuring special guest Miss Yujun Xu, a certified tea ceremony master and intercultural consultant.
