It took me less than forty minutes to vote today. I have tried to vote in the past but was always given the runaround. I promised myself this year I would vote no matter how many hoops I had to jump through. This will be an historical year and I was going to make sure I was apart of it!

Back to regular blogging. LOL

Wedding Traditions – Chinese Tea Ceremony

Posted in Uncategorized

Next summer I will have the opportunity to plan my first Chinese tea ceremony. After the ceremony we will have the traditional American traditions. So of course I had to google to see what this tradition entails. Here is what I found:

The art of drinking and serving tea plays a major cultural role in China. It inspires poetry and songs. Mutual love of tea cements lifelong friendships. For centuries, the ritual of preparing and serving tea has held a special place in the hearts and minds of Chinese aristocracy, court officials, intellectuals and poets.
The Chinese tea ceremony emphasizes the tea, rather than the ceremony — what the tea tastes like, smells like, and how one tea tastes compared to the previous tea, or in successive rounds of drinking. Ceremony doesn’t mean that each server will perform the ritual the same way; it is not related to religion. Each step is meant to be a sensory exploration and appreciation.
Most teas used in the Chinese tea ceremony are grown in the mountains of Taiwan at around 4,000 feet. These teas are particularly refined, such as oolong teas which are lightly fermented and red teas that can be moderately to heavily fermented.
This style of tea-drinking uses small cups to match the small, unglazed clay teapots; each cup is just large enough to hold about two small swallows of tea. These tiny cups are particularly popular in Fujian and Chiujao, in southern coastal China above Canton. In Shanghai and Beijing they use large cups.
