We did a lot of fun and memorable things today. The place I want to talk about was our visit to Dr. Tea. It is interesting that Chinese people when they get thirsty choose to drink tea while Americans of course drink water. The reason why the Chinese do this is because tea is very healthy for the body. I found the presentation very interesting from the pee pee boy to the taste testing of different teas. They made it interesting with funny presentations, taste tests, and a variety of information about tea. The different teas had a specific way of drinking the tea for maximum taste and should take three sips to finish. Also males and females were to drink there tea in a different way, with there thumb and index finger on the sides and middle finger on bottom. The difference between the sexes is male’s hands are closed and females are more open. Examples of how the tea helps the body are: Dispel effects of alcohol and nicotine, regulate blood pressure, lower cholesterol, lose weight, help the skin, good for digestion, restore energy, and relieve headaches. I thought this was an interesting presentation that gave me a better understanding of tea in the Chinese culture. I have always associated tea with either the Chinese or Western European cultures.
