What you'll do

China has been identified as the birthplace of tea. Numerous studies have shown that a variety of Chinese teas can boost your immune system, fight off inflammation, and even ward off cancer and heart disease. If you want to live healthier and longer, learning knowledge of tea definitely helps.

Tea is also deeply woven into the history and culture of China. Chinese tea ceremonies date as far back as 1200 years ago. The Chinese tea ceremony contains the wisdom of Asian philosophy; it reflects the central idea of Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism—peace.

By practising a tea ceremony, one nurtures the body and soul, manners, and purifies the inner world. The elements utilized in the ceremonies—like the spring water, the natural environment, the authentic bamboo or wood tools, and the porcelain tea sets—reflect authenticity.

During this experience,
1. We will explore the tea secrets:
- The important unique stories of tea
- How to identify the quality of tea
- How to blew tea to maximum the wellness benefits, like weight loss, aging delay and energy balance.

2. Mindfulness Tea ceremony time: I will demonstrate an authentic tea ceremony and explain the secret technic on how to make a cup of tasty tea step by step.

3. Guzheng meditation time: I will play my Chinese traditional instrument - Guzheng. The heavenly sounds could bring extremely peaceful vibes to you!

As a second generation tea master from China, I had hosted hundreds of tea ceremonies in both China and USA. And also, I had been traveling around the world in 46 countries for tea tasting in the past few years.

Since the pandemic started, I had been thinking about what I could do to deliver positive vibes to people and what I could contribute to the global environmental sustainability.

So I decided to start my daily “one hour for earth” time - host one hour Chinese tea Masterclass online to bring positive vibes to everyone and donate all the income from this Masterclass to my “tree planting project”. My goal is enriching 1,500 lives and planting 30,000 trees around the world by end of year 2021.

$1 = 1 tree. Now you know how many contributions you will be done to the earth by end of this experience!

What a privilege to spend time with Judy today. She was so generous with her knowledge, kindness and time. As an avid green tea drinker I was still able to learn a tremendous amount about the growing of tea, the types and of course more surrounding the tea ceremony. The anecdotes and meanings of different stages were particularly fascinating and will come to mind every time I drink tea I think! The treat of listening to the music at the end of our session was a beautiful way to end our session. Thank you again Judy. I highly recommend this experience whether you’re an avid tea drinker already or just are intrigued about tea and the tea ceremony.

Judy was a wonderful host - passionate about sharing her knowledge on tea and sharing the art form of a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. She was a wonderful musician too who ended the experience with a beautiful piece on a traditional Chinese Guzheng instrument.

It was cool to hear about Judy's personal connection to tea. We liked hearing about the preparation and the process of Chinese tea ceremonies. The Guzheng is a beautiful instrument and her playing was a great way to end the session. Thanks Judy :)

I really enjoyed Judy’s Secret of Authentic Tea Ceremony event. Judy creates such a welcoming and friendly atmosphere because there are lots of opportunities to interact and engage with the other guests. I found the secrets most interesting, and I learnt a lot about tea and the habits that foster good etiquette in the Tea Ceremony. I loved hearing about the names of traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony utensils and the beautiful tea set parts. A very relaxing and special event. Highly recommend! Thank you, Judy!
