Tea Month at Lan Su

Featuring an authentic tea bazaar, tea events and a poetry series.

This October, Lan Su Chinese Garden, in collaboration with The Tao of Tea, presents Tea Month at Lan Su featuring an authentic tea bazaar, tea events and a companion poetry series. China’s relationship with tea stretches back nearly 5,000 years and tea is deeply woven into Chinese history and culture. Hailed as a cure for a variety of ailments, the nobility considered tea consumption a mark of status, and many have simply enjoyed its flavor. A noted Chinese proverb reinforces this deep cultural connection as it states, “Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one.” Events include: Tea Bazaar with The Tao of Tea—Sundays in October, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Gongfu Tea Ceremony with Red Robe Teahouse & Cafe—Mondays in October, 11-12 p.m. Teas of Mystery with The Tao of Tea—Fridays in October, 1-3 p.m. Steeped in Words Poetry Series — Saturdays in October, 3 p.m. More information about Tea Month at Lan Su can be found at
