“When in China – do as the Chinese!” And one thing every Chinese is doing: drinking tea!For the coffea-junks among us:
“Tea is the agricultural product of the leaves, leaf buds, and internodes of various cultivars and sub-varieties of the Camellia sinensis plant, processed and cured using various methods. […] After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, astringent flavour which many enjoy. […]
The usage of tea as a beverage was first recorded in China, with the earliest records of tea consumption with records dating back to the 10th century BC.” [source]
To sum it up: 3000 years of Chinese tea culture and more than 1 billion active tea-drinkers each day can’t be wrong! It’s time to find out more about the history and all the different kinds of tea! And which place could be better for this than the Ningbo Tea Museum (http://nb-teaculture.com/) at the Moon Lake Park?
Meet us at the Ningbo Tea Museum this Sunday (May 22nd) at 4pm!
Those of you who have been to a Chinese Club before know what that means: playing drinking-games, drinking, enjoying earpiercing loud music and shaking it off on the “shaking dancefloor”. And you can be part of that! 😉
Meet us at TNT (this Sunday – May 22nd) at 9pm
For those of you who are looking forward to join the whole “A Chinese Sunday”-Session (Tea Museum + TNT): after the “Tea Session” we are going to have dinner at a Chinese Restaurant nearby (around 7pm) and then head to TNT (which is very close by)!
It’s gonna be LEDGENDARY!!! 😀
