Kung-Fu Tea Ceremony with Carol Natalotto

To celebrate the Antipodean Encounters and Tea Ware Exhibition Opening, take part in a traditional Kung-Fu Tea Ceremony. Kung fu means ‘art’, ‘skill’ and ‘effort’. In the context of tea preparation, it literally means making tea with effort and dedication, to brew a perfect cup of tea in a more artistic way. This also extends to the art of tasting tea, which also requires ‘skill’.

Slow down and join Carol Natalotto as she shares her tea making skills.
