For all of our pre-intermediate 1 classes, we arranged a special class for tea ceremony!
It was the first time for most people, and perhaps it was also a bit difficult to follow the lecture on the tools and how to use them. The teachers also gave a full demonstration to everyone, which certainly helped make things more understandable.
After the demonstration and a question & answer session, the students tried it out for themselves! Not only making, but tasting!
Their verdict? "The tea wasn't so bitter!" "The sweets could be a bit sweeter!", said some, although there were also some more predictable reactions. Either way, everyone managed to walk away with a finer understanding of the art of tea!
