"I had never experienced a Chinese tea ceremony before. The ritual introduced me to a new way of tasting the complexity in layers of flavour. Talking with Ying Yi about becoming bicultural provoked me to think about the growing and shifting of layers in a person’s identity, and gave me an interesting look at where I grew up ‘from the outside in’."
"I enjoyed experiencing the Chinese tea ceremony. Tea is a common drink in the UK, but we have a much different way of drinking (with milk and sugar), and tea is seen in a different context. It was interesting to gain an insight into the traditional way of drinking tea and experiencing part of Chinese culture."
"The tea ceremony was a great experience to become more aware of the senses. I learned to pay attention to the process of slowing down. This mindful activity helped me to gain a new perspective on how to enjoy drinking tea and having a mindful conversation."
