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.”
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.
