Relive the Tea Ceremony of Song Dynasty

Song Dynasty Style

Just like saying “I like drinking tea” without specifying the kind of tea from the five general categories is insufficiently sophisticated, liking Chinese tea culture without specifying a dynasty feels equally unsatisfactory. Song Dynasty is probably the most important periods for Chinese tea culture, because it bears the root of the unspeakably subtle aesthetic of tea.

Dian Cha is a popular tea making technique in Song. It involves grinding tea cake into tea powder and whipping the mixture to give an impressive milky froth. People drink Dian Cha while appreciate the froth art. Originally started as a part of the ritual in Buddhist temples, the practice was further refined by Sen No Rikkyu in Japan, and even finds its contemporary revival in latte art.

This elaborate way of making tea gives rise to the sark-glazed Jian tea bowls, which have remained in popular, and the “oil-spot” Jian bowl is still the most coveted tea bowl in Japan. Unlike the heavily oxidized teas we get used to today, most tea in Song were white or budding green, and the dark tea bowls create a pleasing contrast to elevate the visual effects.

Participants will also have the opportunities to make Dian Cha by themselves.

Join us for an experiential tea ceremony of the Song Dynasty to relive this thousand-year-long tea vogue.

冰岛在哪里?

中国·云南省临沧市双江拉祜族傣族布朗族佤族自治县勐库镇冰岛村。

冰岛是一个茶叶品种吗?

冰岛茶是以所在地理位置命名的。冰岛茶,是最珍贵的云南普洱茶之一,它是典型的勐库大叶种乔木茶,长大叶、墨绿色,叶质肥厚柔软、茶香浓郁,非常独特,是勐库茶的极品、也是云南普洱茶的品。

临沧市双江县冰岛村的生态环境如何?

冰岛是勐库地区海拔最高的傣族寨,也是勐库地区唯一一个高山上的傣族寨,属于亚热带山地季风气候,干湿季分明,昼夜温差大,立体气候突出,年日照2400小时左右,年平均气温18℃,境内降水丰富,坝区年平均降水量1065毫米,山区年平均降水量1700-1900毫米。全寨房屋坐北朝南视线开阔,不下雪也无冰,四季如春,葱葱绿绿,水源充足,土地肥沃。

冰岛的尊贵地位是怎么形成的?

冰岛古茶树历史悠久,据史料记载,在明代成化二十一年(1485年),当地傣族土司派专人来冰岛栽种茶树,至今已有五百多年。在1904年之前,冰岛茶的地位极高,是勐勐土司的贵族茶园明清时期勐勐的茶种培育基地;现代更是我国国家的茶叶良种培育基地、引种基地,现已成为中国大叶种茶的最佳品种,像现在广为人知的凤庆大叶种就是以冰岛(勐库大叶种)为母本引种培育出来的优秀品种,滋味及口感也别具特色。

冰岛茶为什么贵?

首先,物以稀为贵。冰岛茶每年的产量稀缺,品质又是整个临沧茶区最好的。冰島茶香气高雅,回甘迅猛持久,茶汤绵柔,汤体鲜活,入口富于变化,唇齿生津明显,有独特冰糖甜韵,余韵经久不消,呼气如冰如蜜,茶气内敛而有力,尾水甘甜不掉。深受爱茶人追捧,以致供不应求,所以价格居高不下。

七堂这次为您带来的这款冰岛茶是难得的年份冰岛。它是冰岛2010年五寨拼配,所以既有南迫的苦,地界的甜,坝歪的涩,糯伍的香,又有老寨的凉,可以说是五味俱全。再加上八年的沉淀,几乎是市面少有了。鼎力推荐,不容错过。

Sun Dried Yunnan Black Tea

Sun Dried Yunnan Black Tea

「晒红」,顾名思义就是晒出来的红茶,也称「晒青红茶」。它是介于普洱茶与红茶之间的品种,是长期在民间流传的「云南传统红茶」。由其工艺与红茶工艺更为接近,故被归为红茶。

云南的晒红茶,因为云南特殊的地理环境和原料因素,在晒红茶的加工上有特殊的优势,所加工的晒红茶,具有茶汤橙黄透亮,香气不张扬,有太阳味,汤质柔滑,苦涩度低的品质特点。

晒红茶在工艺上,首先借鉴云南白茶和青茶的工艺制成「太和甜茶」,之后在工艺上又结合普洱茶加工的工艺,所以晒红茶也就同普洱茶一样具有越陈越香的品质特点。因为晒红茶具有香甜柔滑的品饮口感和茶汤苦涩度低的特点,适合广大的消费群体,并且更适合女性消费者品饮。

晒红茶是云南的传统的茶叶品类,距今已有百年的历史。晒红茶具有独特的品饮特点,深受广大茶友认可喜爱。

七堂沙龙第十三期:「茶席上的待人接物之道」

一盏见人情 

喝茶时的待人接物之道,历来是处理人与人之间微妙关系的一种修养。

茶席上的礼仪只是为了形式化的美观吗?

这些细节对体解一道好茶又有怎样的助益?

上回说到,陆羽讲饮茶一事,要精于行而俭于德。

精是做加法,俭是做减法——看似背道而驰的要求,实则使茶事产生了张力。

而这样的茶道思想又是如何在喝茶/泡茶的具体仪礼举止中体现出来的呢?

茶杯应该怎么拿?

喝一杯茶分几口?

如何「闻香」?

递来的茶壶怎么接?

怎样去体会和描述茶的「气息」?

……

12/9,本次七堂沙龙,将讲述如何在茶席上举止得体,通过适宜的茶席礼仪,完完全全地品赏到一道茶的真味。好茶分享人刘呗宁将会用一道私藏老茶,以茶席礼仪为凭借,开启潜藏在感官中的林泉丘壑。
