The Art of Chinese Literati and Tea Culture

Chinese tea culture is well-established and was promoted in the ancient time by the scholars. Tea gathering became their daily leisure activity. Because of the close relationship between tea and the literary circle in the ancient time, many poems and paintings related to tea tasting are inspired by the Chinese tea culture. In this lecture series, specialists were invited to introduce the lifestyle of traditional Chinese literati, and share their views and insights in Chinese tea culture.
