25 Nov The tea workshop has concluded!
First of all, we want to express our sincerest gratitude to Dr. Zhou Jihong for making this workshop possible. Secondly, we want to thank all participants and we hope that everyone has learned a lot more about tea and the healing benefits of it!
Dr. Zhou talked about all the different kinds of tea, where they are from, and how you can identify them. Besides the use of tea in daily life, she showed us that tea is also used in beauty and food products. The scientific healing properties of tea, against which disease they are effective and how tea is used in (traditional) Chinese medicine were also discussed. She explained that in China, tea and extracts of tea have been used for many years by researchers as a medicine to treat different kind of brain and heart diseases.
During the workshop Dr. Zhou talked about the Gaiwan (盖碗), which is a kind of tea utensil, and she showed everyone how and why to use one. Furthermore we learnt that if you are having sleep problems, green tea will help resolve them. If you are experiencing stomach aches, black tea will prove helpful.
We have learnt a lot of new things about tea and hopefully we can invite Dr. Zhou back again next year, for an on-site workshop.
Keep a close eye on our media, as we will communicate more November and December Health months information in the next weeks!
Keep learning and stay healthy!
