Tea has been an integral part of Chinese culture for thousands of years, symbolizing hospitality and friendship. In a cup of tea lies a miniature world, and with each sip, one can contemplate life's vastness. Therefore, tea not only embodies China's rich cultural heritage but also serves as an excellent medium for modern interpersonal communication.

During the training session, starting from the classic works on tea, Chí Méngfēi elaborated on the origins of tea, its evolution, classification, common tea utensils, the arrangement of tea sets, tea etiquette, and the essential elements and methods of brewing the six major types of tea. Through this, she demonstrated her exquisite skills in the art of tea, allowing participants to experience first-hand the profoundness and enduring legacy of tea culture.
