Dears group members,
let's meet Saturday the 16th to discover what the Chinese call : « Gong Fu Cha 功夫茶 », that we can translate as « the Art of Making Tea » (also translated as the Tea Ceremony).
During this 45min you’ll discover the different tools that we use, the difference between the different types of tea (green, black, red, white, Puher …), their benefits, maybe some philosophy and history, and of course we’ll taste them and enjoy a relaxing moment around a cup of tea.
It is difficult to organise this kind of tasting for more than 5 persons at a time, so in order that more people can enjoy it, we’ll split into 3 groups of 5 that can come one after the other. The first group from 14h00 to 14h45, the second group from 15h to 15h45 and the third group from 16h00 to 16h45. If you have a preference, please let me know.
As I didn’t find a suitable tea house for that in Geneva ( the only good one closed some years ago), we’ll do it in my office that is empty during the week end and that have a suitable good atmosphere (On the first floor, just above the Denner Supermarket. The nearest bus stop is Grand Saconnex place) . The tea come from my personal collection so it's free !
See you,
Vahé
