Pinecone Cottage Tea House – Chinese Tea Ceremony and Afternoon Tea

April 30, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Dan Robertson, owner of The Tea House, is demonstrating a Chinese Gong Fu Tea Ceremony for our Pinecone Cottage guests. Dan has been an importer, blender, and purveyor of premium teas for over 20 years. Gong Fu Tea is not a type of tea, it’s a traditional way of brewing tea involving the ritual preparation and presentation of tea. Dan will be discussing the history and culture surrounding the ceremony and after the ceremony, we’ll enjoy a Chinese dim sum inspired Afternoon Tea.
