Tea Drinking

Tea drinking is a serious business in both Hong Kong and the Chinese culture. A Tang Dynasty scholar who devised the first definitive treatise on tea making had initiated this tradition, which began almost 1,200 years ago.

Today, this culture remains a thriving tradition. Ardent tea enthusiasts often have their own special tea pots, which is commonly made of clay, when they go for their tea drinking sessions. It is said that the smaller the teapot, the better the tea. The smell of the tea is instilled in the pot and the fragrant is thus stronger. Some teas are bitter, whereas some are sweet. There are different kinds of tea-leaves that give out various smells and tastes. Not everyone will appreciate the same kind of tea as it is acquired by the preferences of the individual.
