27/06/10 Bruxelles, Colloque sur le thé en plein air

Dear teachatters,

I have the pleasure to inform you that, this year, there will be a "tea meeting" (I haven't found another decent name) on the 27th of june.

Image

What will happen:
This is a small scale event, there will be 3 tables around a lake, at each table, people will introduce different tea regions as follows:

-Taiwan: Someone who has family in Taiwan tells about her experience in Taiwanese plantations and prepares tea (perhaps a Baozhong of a DongDing)

-Japan: The teashop owner of Cha Yuan in Brussel will tell about his 2010 journey in Japanese plantations and prepare Japanese teas.

-China: two chinese people will prepare teas they have found in small scale plantations and tell a lot of interesting stories about their travels trhougt plantations.

Here are pictures of the 2009 tea meeting.

And finally,

I hope some Belgian teachaters will read this message :D

Cheers,
J.

Yes it is now an annual event, and that's great.

In september 2011, I hope we will create a "Kot à projet" about tea, we just have to persuade the University to give us a place to do it; a lot of students are interrested in tea.
Kot à projet:KOT whose inhabitants have similar interests and who organise activities for the general student population, they are similar to Fraternity and sorority houses, but smaller in size with only the committee living in the Kot.

Et pus quoi encore, les batailles se font uniquement dans les médias et entre politiques.
Les deux populations ont la stricte obligation de s'aimer, ou de s'ignorer :)
