Hey My Dear TEA FRIENDS,
Lets have a TEA-licious time. 🙂 Last week, i came across a Beautiful and Unique way of serving Tea. It is an Art, a Tradition, an Entertainment source originated in CHINA. In China, the root of Tea houses, can actually trace back to some 1000 years or so. Drinking tea has been popular in every part of China, while the city of Chengdu is the only city that possesses with such loyalty to tea houses.
In Chengdu, tea houses are spotted everywhere built according to local surroundings. Some of the tea houses are well decorated with crockery, paintings and miniature garden. While more of them are simply made of bamboo, and filled with bamboo tables and bamboo chairs. Bamboo chairs, wooden tables, bamboo houses, porcelain tea sets, brass teapot and “Tea Doctors” are authentic features of tea houses.
The uniqueness and exclusivity of this serving Tea Tradition come comes from the teapot that they use for serving TEA which is made of Brass and has a spout with approximately 3 feet long. The people in the tea houses who can skillfully use this teapot are named “Tea Doctors”. Due to the long spout, Tea Doctors can pour the tea from a long distance into a small teacup without spilling a drop. The Tea Doctors claim that no foreigner can ever learn and implement this Art, the way they do. They are the ones who have the flare, the elegance, the grace and the TEA that runs through their veins. The concentration with which they perform is commendable. I am sure you will agree once you watch the videos.
Here are some videos, where you can watch the Tea Doctors in Action. I assure you, you will enjoy every bit of it.
