Why Taoist Immortals Drink Tea: Longevity and the Poetic Life - After introducing the basics of Chinese tea appreciation, Ken will discuss how to create a beautiful, harmonious tea gathering, including the traditional role of poetry in setting the mood. He will also teach a basic Taoist meditation to explore how relaxation and quiet breathing open the senses. Guests will taste and scent delicious tea and learn about the Chinese Hakka People’s custom of “Pestle Tea,” in which nuts and seeds are ground with tea leaves to create an immortality elixir!
