We offer a range of tea presentations, Chinese tea ceremony demonstrations & workshops in both English and Chinese. These are complemented by informal tea tastings which can be arranged at short notice.
Presentations can be given on many aspects of tea. Examples include tea history, tea accessories (e.g. tea pots, trays, utensils, cups, mugs etc.), tea types & origins. If you have a presentation you would like us to give please contact us. Group size will depend on the location, facilities available and the presentation content itself.
Our demonstrations normally focus on Cha Yi, tea art and the traditional Chinese tea ceremony. The demonstration allows a large group of people (5-10+) to get a practical overview of how to make tea in different styles. A Chinese tea ceremony demonstration can be a good starting point from which to then organise separate workshops.
Our tea tastings can be pre-arrange based on your and your group's preferences. Alternatively Wan Ling Tea House offers basic 1 hour introduction to tea which gives you the chance to taste 3 different teas.
Our tea workshops are small sessions which aim to create a friendly group in which to learn. Again these are adapted to our attendees requirements. Past workshops include Cha Yi, Cha Dao, tea types, Tie Guan Yin appreciation & using teapots. Typically these workshops are designed for 2-6 people, though 4 is probably the most ideal as it allows everyone plenty of time in which to practice and to learn from not just Wan Ling but the others in the group! Tea workshops usually last from 1-3 hours depending on attendees availability, schedule and patience. A series of workshops is available if you are looking to refine your skills or to practice a cross-section of styles.
Our Chinese Tea Ceremony courses, demonstrations and presentations are available all year round in our Shanghai Tea Shop or in the UK from July through to mid September.
If you have any questions, requests or would like to book a session or course please do contact us.
