On Friday 24th November Year 5 were treated to a cup of tea, Chinese style! We were visited by Yuija from the Confucius Institute of the Sheffield University who introduced us to the art of the Chinese Tea Celebration.
The children, dressed in traditional Chinese costumes, watched in awe at the beautiful precision of this tea making ritual. The tea is first brewed and then shared in a fairness cup to allow the flavour to fully permeate the water. The whole process took 15-20 minutes before the tasting could commence. We tried green tea and chocolate orange with the latter going down a treat!
