The Tang Dynasty - Rewinding our Minds 1200 Years
Before we dive straight into The Classic of Tea, I want to share some background and give us all, a deeper understanding of the time so that we can all better understand this amazing book. Lu Yu’s Classic of Tea was written during the mid-Tang Dynasty about 1,200 years ago and a LOT has changed since then – so it’s no shocker that we really need to get ourselves into the mindset for MAX enjoyment! Not only the way we grow, process and drink tea has changed, but also the way people live and view things are obviously wildly different. This video, provides a snapshot of the Tang Dynasty and how people enjoyed tea around that time and take a quick look at some of the tea tools they used. Check it out and then dive into the Sunday Tea Book Videos!
