Chinese tea ceremony

This is our new Chinese tea set from the Tea ceremony @ treasure green tea company on Georgia street.   click here for the tea company website & tea ceremony education.  As tourists last weekend, we were poured tea by Julie Kwan (totally name dropping here), a film director & her entourage. click here for Julie Kwan’s imbd.   Then we spent an hour with the owner, whom they are including as part of a documentary on the changing face of Chinatown, Vancouver. The hilarious, young owner is the 3rd generation owner of this incredible, stylish tea shop. We got some education and good tea that day. So today… We MAKE Chinese tea, back at home in the rainforest of Quadra
