The Culture of Tea |
Dr. Zhiwei Liu will briefly introduce the biological background of teas and the tea plant, the classification of teas and how they are made, and how to properly brew different kinds of teas. You will be then taken on a journey back into the Chinese history to find out how this little plant has become integrated in the Chinese culture, from poetry, to daily life of the average folks, and finally to become a government-controlled merchandise, and how these little leaves led the Middle Kingdom into a position to defend itself against invading western powers and eventually opened itself to the rest of the world, although reluctantly. While you immerse yourself in the fascinating stories of tea, you will be invited to taste several of Dr. Liu’s favorite teas directly from China.
Offered by the Academy of Lifelong Learning; instructed by Dr. Zhiwei Liu, hosted by The Cafe, Klehm Hall.
