After spending some quality time in the Hong Kong airport due to Visa issues, missed planes and mainly lack of communication, we finally made it to an aeroplane, where two men started a very polite fight which kept us for an other two hours in a rioting plane.

The Tea Appreciation Class

Dec 6, 2012   //   by Daniela   //   Blog, Daniela, Hong Kong  //  2 Comments

In Hong Kong we took part in a tea appreciation class which teaches you about Chinese tea how to prepare it (the right way) and it’s history. Tea is very healing and can be detoxifying. There is a legend that a person ate leaves to find their uses and teach the people about them. One day he ate around 70 toxic leaves, then almost dead he saw a tea plant ate it and was completely healed. Chinese teas all come from the same leaf. The different teas are just different fermentations. Here is a table of the different teas and the fermentation. The name is the colour of the leaf before it is made in into tea.
