Impact Hub Birmingham
58 Oxford Street, B5 5NY Birmingham, United Kingdom
Join Yi Zeng for a workshop on The Traditional Art of Chinese Tea: Taste and Chinese Tea ceremonies

In this class, you will learn how to smell and see different Chinese tea; you will learn the tea making process from wild leaves to Chinese tea; you'll see the demonstration of tea ceremony, and Yi will demonstrate the traditional way and traditional tea ware to prepare tea and finally you'll get to taste the tea!

As an outcome from this class, Yi would like to see people informed enough to go out and buy Chinese tea, or attend a future workshop that Yi runs at Harborne Food School or even be interested enough to take a Chinese Tea Tour in China that Yi is currently planning for later on in the year!

Barter It...ems to bring for Yi
Trade school runs on barter and rather than a monetary exchange. Yi, the teacher of this class has requested one of the following.

* Any information on Horse riding in the UK, any connections to the horse riding community (especially Birmingham)
* Links to anyone you know that might be interested about
* Chinese culture and would like to go to China

A little more about Yi:
Yi Zeng is originally from China, and grew up in the city that was mixing with all different culture and cuisines across China.
She formed the interest of cooking when she was young, watching cooking TV shows everyday instead of watching Cartoons like other child. She started professional cookery training in the University and achieved Master's degree of Nutrition in University of Bristol. Yi specialises in making authentic and tradition Chinese street food, like dumplings, bao, dim sum and noodles. She is also a Chinese dance teacher, Mandarin teacher and Tai Chi teacher. If you are interested about Chinese food and culture, then do attend the class and connect with Yi!

Yi started a Chinese street food project called 90Foodlab since 2016, which is all about delivering the authentic Chinese cookery workshop to local people using organic and healthy ingredients. The project is now run as a student social enterprise supported by University of Bristol.

About Trade School
The Trade School network is a collective of self-organised barter-for-knowledge schools across the world. Trade School began in January 2009 as an experiment by a group of artists in New York City who wanted to celebrate local wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange.

Trade School Digbeth is a local chapter of this initiative driven by the Impact Hub Birmingham community and friends. For more info and other upcoming Trade School classes, click here.
