Enchanting Tea Culture in the Beijing Olympic Opening Ceremony

We chinese are pride of our tea cultures. Chineas hand picked green tea leaves are pretty love by chinese and foreigners around. Chinese tea as part of Chinese culture, is delicately showed in the olympic ceremony feast, which make it more popular.

The amazing Beijing Olympic ceremony has left with us many unforgettable moments. I was deeply impressed when the tea culture was expressed. A green color Chinese word of "Tea" showed up in the LCD with elegant tea photos. Even some foreigners may not know this word equivalent in Chinese, but I bet they have been deeply attracted by this tea cultures and want to learn more about it.

Olympic villagers amazed by Chinese tea culture

In the international zone of the Olympic village lies a small Chinese teahouse. Small as it is, it possesses all the features a teahouse should have. Old-styled tables and chairs, fake bamboos, miniature bridge and brook and melodious Chinese traditional music created a perfect atmosphere for tea degustation.

Every afternoon, the teahouse will perform three tea-themed classical dancing shows and Ballantyne made her way through the heavy rain only because she did not want to miss the show.

Many tea fans have taken notice of the Olympic Games, as China is where many of our favorite teas are from, as well as the drink of choice among the Chinese.

Chinese Tea is A Way of Life

A cup of tea in the morning sets the pace of the day. Sitting and chatting with a few good friends over a couple rounds of tea makes life worth living. Brewing Chinese tea calms me down. Chinese tea is more than just something to drink. It has in fact become a way of life for many. Chinese tea. have various designs and add more flavor to the tea culture. No other cookware can have such art elements and delicate feeling associated with them.

Chinese Diet Green Tea and Longevity

It's better than health medicine sometimes if you drink it for a long time.The role of Chinese diet green tea in promoting longevity has been investigated upon by many researchers. They found the premise of their study on observing that Japanese women who are greater-than-average Chinese diet green tea drinkers; have lower mortality rates compared to others. This led the researchers to believe that Chinese diet green tea has "a protective factor against premature death."Tea is so magic, it's not that inspiring like coffee, but more delicate and romance with lots of culture elements around it. Tea is cosy, comforting, easy to brew, and can be enjoyed anywhere at any time.
