Blue Lagoon - Cha Xi, Mandala
Teaparker spoke at a book club about his book 'Cha Xi - Mandala'. After his presentation, he asked me to perform a real-life example of a Cha Xi of my own creation.
There are 2 things I love to do in summer: going to the beach or walking in the mountains. And when I can't do that, I can always combine these two feelings of clear, fresh air/water with my 'blue lagoon' Cha Xi (here, I'm using Da Yu Ling high mountain Oolong!).
I use the third Cha Xi from this article and added some corals on the beige fabric! I found those on the beach of Kenting. The 'crystal clarity' of Da Yu Ling's taste and brew is like the water in a 'blue lagoon'. The result is Paradise!

The large crowd shows that many Chinese are interested in deepening their knowledge, understanding and practice of tea!
