The Tea Culture Academy

Today being the mid-autumn festival the Tea Culture academy of ZAFU invited us (along with lots of freshmen and just regular people from the city) to attend a tea party which was more like a traditional tea ceremony and tasting.This took place on the sports field right next to our house.The students set up little tables with different kinds of tea and invited people to taste them. This was followed by various speeches and competitions with prizes none of which we understood of course.But it was lots of fun and we became very popular with students wishing to practice their English and take photos of us.One girl,Since,an English major,was particularly friendly. Then we even taught a group of Forestry freshmen to say “shalom” after managing to explain where Israel is.It was altogether charming and enjoyable.
