Tea Ceremony at Dr. Tea

Ahhh after a stimulating time at the Great Wall, George, Mollie and I went to Dr. Tea in Chinatown, Beijing for a tea ceremony. China likes to promote tea culture to foreigners and pays for the tea house to operate, which meant free tea for us! Our awesome tea expert took us through some of the teas they sell at Dr. Tea. We tasted jasmine tea, which is great for mornings or early afternoons. Olong tea is the most common tea in China – I bought some to bring home to my mom – and it was delicious! It leaves a slight earthy aftertaste. Yum. We also enjoyed a sweet tea made entirely of dried fruits and a few others.

To ensure purified and steeped to perfection, little “pee pee boys” pee when water is hot enough to make tea safely. The little figurines are cute… I’ll let you google that one.
