More than 50 people filled every chair in the Chan classroom on February 25 to hear a presentation on the Tea Culture of Southwest China by Yin Na, a tea artist from Chongqing, China. Her illustrated presentation offered an overview of the ancient roots and practices of tea culture in China and then focused on teas of the southwest provinces, with a demonstration of the proper method for preparing tea. Attendees enjoyed tastings of three teas — Golden Flower from the Tea Horse Road that linked Southwest China with the Himalayan plateau, Pu’er from Yunnan, and also White Bird Beak Buds, an ancient wild Pu’er tea. We look forward to future visits by Yin Na. The Garden’s Education Committee, led by board member Chunman Gissing, is planning several other tea events for this year in collaboration with local tea masters.

A mom and her 2-year-old son reach inside and take a peek. The little ones often feed pebbles to Dragon Seeker. Even in winter, the Garden can be a fun family outing for on a pleasant day. The family dog (on leash) is welcome too
Late afternoon is a special time for appreciating the Garden’s architectural details and the interplay of light and shadow. This view of the east gate reveals the intricate layering of design elements and color, from blue sky to woodwork. Any pleasant day throughout late fall and winter is a wonderful time to come for a walk and savor the Garden’s beauty as the sun slips into the western horizon. Photo by Sandy Marvinney.
