Han Tea Ceremony at Seattle Chinese Garden

March 23, 2012


Tomorrow, prescription March 24th, from 1:30pm until 2:30pm, the Seattle Chinese Garden will host a Han Style Chinese Tea Ceremony, presented by Mei Collier, owner of Eight Cranes. Ms. Collier is a frequent speaker at the Asian Museum in Pasadena, and at many California universities. After she heads back to California, she will conduct a tea ceremony for the Liu Fang Garden at the Huntington Library.

In the first ten minutes of the event Ms. Collier will introduce the ceremony, followed by the 45-minute ceremony itself. She will be available afterwards to answer questions.

Cost for the event is $5 for members of the Seattle Chinese Garden, $7 for the general public. The garden is located at the north entrance of South Seattle Community College, 6000 16th Ave SW. Contact the garden, by email or phone to make a reservation, 206.934.5219.

Excerpted from the Eight Cranes website:

Mei is native Chinese, born during the Communist era under Mao. Raised during The Cultural Revolution Mei grew up in a society that did not reward independent thoughts and ideas. Fortunately, Mei was lucky enough to see the world through the eyes of her famous parents who were actors in China. Her parents taught her to be independent, razor sharp, and to experience arts and culture by embracing them fully. Mei’s father was a famous radio and stage actor, Tong Xing Jin, who was well known for his voice and performances on stage and in movies. Her mother, Guorong Chen, was also a stage actress with the national theater company in Beijing and after moving to the U.S. worked in Hollywood films such as “Joy Luck Club”, “RedCorner”and others. Mei credits her independent nature, vivid personality and focused character to her parents.

The Struggle of Making Content Interesting & A Few Unhelpful Phrases

May 18, 2019 0 Comments

As someone that has done a fair amount of content on tea, I have a lot of mixed thoughts on the way information is passed. With tea reviews or discussing a specific tea I have struggled with the question: how to talk about an individual tea or tea in general in an interesting or useful way.. Whether you like or dislike TeaDB episodes largely depends on whether you enjoy watching two particular people drink and binter. This is fine enough and it is certainly fun for Denny & I to create, but I’ll also agree with the sentiment that it’s not necessarily the most substantive way to review a tea in depth. There’s some signal but there’s also a lot of noise. Writing about a specific tea also isn’t easy and I think is actually very difficult to execute in a way that is actually consistently interesting or useful for people. Most people just want to know if you liked or didn’t like a specific tea. Making something that piques interest beyond that is a challenge and even if you don’t like them a place like Mei Leaf has succeeded in creating content that really does engage their viewers. You also have to consider that the majority of people have not had the tea or are even unfamiliar with the basic taste profile (i.e. Denny & I describing a traditionally stored pu’erh, when the audience has never had one).. Here are some phrases I dislike and hear frequently enough that I find them unhelpful and sometimes even counter-productive.
