How do we know tea without knowing its root? Join us as we begin at the birthplace of tea, gazing beyond the limited 200-year colonial history explored in contemporary tea education. We will explore the knowledge our ancestors shared through oral transmission and text. If you’re starting your journey with tea and want to learn directly from its root, this is the class for you!
You will learn:
The view/logic of tea according to our ancestors;
The origin of tea based on oral transmission from Master Lin and the Master's Tea House.
The Opium War, the stolen trees and the impacts of colonisation on tea.
The teaching of "tea" “茶" 2200 years ago.
Tea as part of nature, diversity and humanity v.s. tea as a commodity.
