Chinese tea workshop

I studied a little about Chinese tea when I took Japanese Tea Adviser certification. Aside from oolong and jasmine, I haven’t tried any other chinese teas. Maybe you know a lot about Chinese tea more than I do. Yesterday I joined a Chinese tea workshop. I was so excited about itψ(`∇´)ψ I saw a chagai demonstration and also tried 6 different Chinese teas.

The movement of chagai (or should I say the Chinese Way of Tea) is more elegant than Japanese. The Chinese movements have more curves like dancing. It’s really beautiful. I think Japanese movements are rectilinear, simple and natural. It reminds me the difference between Chinese kung-fu and Japanese karate.
