Sharing the joy of tea with the world
People of China take their tea very seriously. Tea Art of China founder Yin Na is reflective of the great Chinese culture of the past. She rejoices in traditional Chinese beauty in the art of tea. She has trained all over Chongqing to satisfy her great curiosity and desire to learn everything possible regarding tea. She has completed all study and certification and is a Senior Tea Art Specialist as certified by the Chinese government through a series of exams. She is qualified to teach all 3 levels of Tea Art Specialist courses, and is considered one of China's leading tea experts.
Through her book and website, Tea Art of China, Yin Na is connecting with people in the western hemisphere to understand all things regarding tea and the art of tea. In 2017, Yin Na partnered with tea entrepreneurs in Tacoma, Washington, and formed Tea Art of China - A US/China Partnership.
Tea Art Specialists understand everything regarding selecting and enjoying the best possible tea. They understand that, for tea to be perfect, one must understand much more than just the following information:
* The region each tea comes from is critical
* The time of year it is harvested
* Each producer may process the leaves differently - having a profound effect on flavor
* How long it is aged (Pu'erh)
* The temperature of the water (varies for each type and, water too hot spoils the tea).
The perfect tea ceremony gives her great pleasure. Sharing it with others is her life's dream. As you watch videos of her, you will notice that serving tea is like ballet. The arm movement is beautiful, as is the rest of the environment (clothing, music, art, smell, etc.).
Through Tea Art of China, Yin Na's hopes to share the joy of tea to the world.
