Presentations of rare Chinese Tea's
and the Chinese Tea Ceremony
Since China is one of the earliest tea producers in the world,
tea-drinking has a long tradition and is an integral part of the culture of the Chinese people.
The Chinese Tea Festival will be held in Amsterdam from October 2 through 30, 2005
in the Hortus Botanicus, a scenic garden near the center of Amsterdam and at
Wijs & Zonen in the Warmoesstraat, the street where the first tea arrived in Europe.
Organized jointly by the city's Tea Culture House and the Hortus Botanicus,
the 28-day event will stage tea ceremonies, performances and lectures
about Chinese tea customs and traditions.
