This is the second Chinese tea ceremony in Athens. Though many Greek tea lovers are interested in Chinese tea, and would like to know more culture about Chinese tea, there are few chances in Greece for them to see the real tea ceremony or taste the high quality Chinese tea.
Eley Yuan, the co-founder of Meet Culture and also the tea specialist, has started the Chinese Tea Ceremony and Sharing in Athens since last December, which was warmly welcomed by the Greek tea lovers.
One day before Chinese New Year’s Eve, which is the most important night for all Chinese people, Eley hosted the tea ceremony to celebrate Chinese New Year. 24 tea lovers attended this meaningful event.
She introduced different types of Chinese tea and the way how Chinese people drink tea, demonstrated the formal tea ceremony, and also shared the stories about Chinese new year.
Of course, the attendees also enjoyed several types of nice tea, which were brought from China.
Eley and her partner Kevin also performed the Chinese traditional music of Guqin and Xiao, two ancient Chinese instruments.
