Hakka Teahouse, Beipu

These shots were taken at a teahouse in Beipu where visitors are able to grind their own spices, tea, and nuts into a Hakka-style tea which is eaten with a bowl and spoon… and in my case, crisped rice.  It’s a different take on tea, and it’s interesting to see a culture that has so many different kinds… much like the European/North American beer and wine culture.

…first, we’ve got the unground ingredients, which were placed in the bowl from biggest to smallest…

…followed by the finished product, which might not look appetizing at first.  It WAS tasty, with a sort of nutty “healthy” taste to it – if that makes sense.

I’ll be posting more outdoor shots from Beipu soon…
