Chinese Tea Culture Tour

Tea is native to China, and Chinese people are believed to have enjoyed tea drinking for more than 4,000 years. The Classic of Tea (Cha Jing),
wrote by Lu Yu, the Tea Sage of China, was considered as the world’s first comprehensive treatise on tea. This little book details rules concerning
various aspects of tea, such as growth areas for tea trees, wares and skills for processing tea, tea tasting, the history of Chinese tea and quotations
from other records, comments on tea from various places, and notes on what occasions tea wares should be complete and when some wares
could be omitted.
Some writers classify tea into four categories, white, green, oolong and black, according to the fermentation level. Others add categories for red,
scented and compressed teas. All of these come from varieties of the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea is the most popular type of tea consumed
in China.  Chinese tea culture refers to the methods of preparation of tea, the equipment used to make tea and the occasions in which tea is
consumed in China. During this tour, you will know about Chinese tea culture from following categories:

 

China Porcelain Tour

Chinese Ceramics :Pottery, porcelain and ceramics are three easily confused terms to describe the earthenware production in China. 
Pottery can be any object made from porous clay and baked at a temperature ranging from hot, direct sunlight to baking, or firing, in a kiln at a
temperature of about 1,000 degrees Celsius. It is usually neither hard nor stable. In order to produce ideal results, before firing, pigments or colors
were supposed to be applied to pottery. After firing, it can also be painted with almost any colors.
Porcelain, on the other hand, is made from a mixture of special clays, often kaolin, which is made from decomposed crystals of granite, and fired at
a very high temperature of 1,350 degree Celsius, at which kaolin becomes white. It is hard and much more durable than pottery. After firing,
porcelain can be painted in a rainbow of colors and glazed, and then fired at a low temperature to seal the color and harden the glaze. Even the
word “china” is often used to describe fine Chinese porcelain.

China Taiji Tour

The Chinese characters for Taiji can be translated as the “Supreme Ultimate Force”. The notion of “supreme ultimate” is often associated
with the Chinese concept of yin-yang, the notion that one can see a dynamic duality (male/female, active/passive, dark/light, forceful/yielding, etc.)
in all things. “Force” (or, more literally, “fist”) can be thought of here as the means or way of achieving this ying-yang, or “supreme-ultimate”
discipline. In a very real sense one can consider Taiji to be a physical expression and manifestation of the principles and philosophy of Taoism.
The Three Principles of Chinese Taiji are: Relaxation, tranquility and the state of being natural.
Following the principles of Taoist internal alchemy, the goal of Taiji is to return the body and mind to its original pure and healthy state. Emphasis
is put on being kind, generous and helpful to others and releasing one’s own stress and worries. Taiji has been described as a form of
“meditation in motion” where the continuity of its movements, combined with the devotion of one’s undivided attention, heal and revitalize both
the body and mind.Taiji consists of sequences of movements which derived from the martial arts (and perhaps even more ancestrally than that,
from the natural movements of animals and birds) although the way they are performed in Tai Chi is slowly, softly and gracefully with smooth
and even transitions between them.
