Here is a report about one of tea ceremonies in the Moscow Tea Museum. Maria, the “Tea Master” held the ceremony for children – she prepared white tea Bai-Hao-Ing-Chzen according to the Chinese tradition. A tea master must know how to prepare water, must know everything about the 6 kinds of tea, where they grow, how they are gathered and how they can influence people.
