Tea from China at Baldwin Library: Great event and featured in the Observer, too!

Baldwin Library  Everyone's Reading Shanghai Girls & t BTS presents Tea from China

As part of the  Everyone's Reading 2016 program, which features the book, "Shanghai Girls" by Lisa See, Baldwin Public Library is hosting a number of events celebrating this captivating book. On March 13, Barb's Tea Service presented "Tea from China" as part of this community program. 

A reporter from the Observer was also in attendance and wrote a great article about the event in this week's edition:  Try Chinese Tea at Everyone's Reading.  We'll be presenting the same program at the Canton Library next month. 

Rachel & Pam brew the teas for tasting, and Taylor assists with set-up.

Our presentation on the history of tea included a demonstration of the Chinese tea ceremony in addition to a samping of four Chinese teas. Our expert brewers, Rachel and Pam, prepared and served the tea and Taylor assisted in set-up.

Three of the four teas sampled came from Socra Tea in Detroit

Three of the four teas came from Socra Tea in Detroit:  milky jade oolong, dragon well and keemun. We enjoyed sampling these delicious teas as much as our guests!

Barb with Maria Williams, Head of Adult Services

We displayed Chinese teaware, including the curious clay baby, which has a novel way of indicating when the water is warm enough for tea.

We were special guests of Maria Williams, Head of Adult Services at Baldwin Library and honored to be part of the Everyone's Reading program.

Barb's Tea Service had a wonderful time with a great turnout at Baldwin Library.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the Canton Library April 17th for more Tea from China!
