Presenting the traditional Chao Zhou Kung Fu style tea ritual at the annual Asia Festival held in Bucharest, Romania. In our perception, the Chao Zhou Kung Fu tea ritual is imbued with both temperature and warmth, quite literally, due to the use of coal to heat the water. This ritual possesses a rich history and narrative, reminding of the actual lives that are still drinking tea in the streets and alleys of the city of Chaozhou, as well as the many regions they have spread the cultural traditional to. In Chinese, "Kung Fu" translates to "a moment of time," signifying a skill or technique that requires patience and dedication to cultivate and nurture over time. Through this "Kung Fu," you establish a genuine and grounded connection with both the tea itself and the individuals with whom you are sharing this tea experience.
