Chinese Tea ceremony and Picnic
July 16, 2022
Picnic in spring and summer in China has always been a tradition and a popular activity among family and friends, and the menus are very special and seasonable – they are refreshing, healthy, shared but just as tasty. As sharing is a big part of Chinese culture, it’s not just about sharing food, but also a good conversation and time together! An ancient Tea Ceremony is a perfect opening to help quiet the mind, and create more space and mindfulness to the present moment, for example, before a picnic or meal starts. Then we have the perfect Yin (Tea Ceremony) + Yang (Picnic) balance.
We are excited to bring you an unique, mindful and authentic Chinese picnic and Tea Ceremony experience in Flevopark in Amsterdam. Join our Host Leila to start with a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony – she will present specially selected tea (Oolong) and guide you through a Kongfu-style ceremony and tea meditation that cultivates mindful process and fluid flow in a harmonious atmosphere and improves your taste bud, senses, health and soul.
Then we will have a picnic together including the home-made special menu (3-course, all vegetarian):
Rice paper rolls
Sweet paired with tea
Special sweets to pair with tea
Please bring your own Picnic Blankets. If it rains that day, we have a sheltered place in the park. If you would like drink alcoholic drinks, please feel free to bring them with you.
Price – 35 euros per person (ex. BTW) including the 1-hour Tea Ceremony, 3-course food and the whole unique experience.
