Teaparker's monthly public tea lecture! I had told him that they started to prepare tea like me and he suggested that they perform at this historical site, built by tea merchant Chen Chao-Jun in 1914. This Chinese tea merchant found his inspiration in the English Tudor revival style. In this house, he entertained his foreign customers, who came mostly from Southeast Asia to purchase scented Baozhong tea.
This mix of cultures and nationalities is well exemplified by my French-Taiwanese children! And it's further reflected in the diverse Cha Xi they created for the Big Arbor Dian Hong they brewed.
Note: To avoid them getting burned, we didn't use fire in the Nilu, but simply poured boiling water in the silver kettle. Don't let your children handle boiling water unattended!
Tea culture knows no boundaries.
Young and not so young enjoy a sweet cup of tea!
