Ceremonia del Té

As many of you know, in June we opened a new tea space, right in front of Čaj Chai Teahouse and we’ve named it Ceremonia del Té (you can follow us on Facebook as Ceremonia del Té or on Instagram as barcelona_tea_ceremony). This new space is dedicated to the Tea Ceremony and Cha Dao (the Way of Tea). Here we exhibit and sell handicrafts, teaware and tea accessories for tea ceremonies. We also teach about tea through workshops and tea ceremonies. Lastly, this space serves as a showroom where we teach and train profesionals in the restaurant sector about our selection of tea on offer and how to serve tea properly. This space will not follow traditional opening hours, although you will typically find us open on Friday and Saturday afternoons and by special appointment (email info@cajchai.com). Outside of those times the staff at Čaj Chai Teahouse will be happy to assist you with your inquiries.
Here is our schedule of events for October and November:

 

Tea Ceremony
Friday, October 20 (18:30 – 20:30)

This tea ceremony will be open to the public. Space is limited so we recommend you come a little early to be guaranteed a spot. We will begin with a short welcome and introduction before commencing. We will then proceed with the tea ceremony, sharing a few cups or bowls of tea in silence. Lastly, we’ll save a little time for questions and for sharing our experience etc. Suggested minimum donation 13 €.

 

Red Tea (Hong Cha) from China, Taiwan and Japan
Saturday, October 28 (10:00 – 12:00)

En esta degustación probaremos un gran abanico de selectos tés rojos. Curiosamente, en Oriente llaman té rojo a lo que nos acostumbramos a llamar té negro en Occidente. La llegada de otoño es el momento perfecto para introducirnos en esta maravillosa gama de tés porque al bajar la temperaturas los tés rojos nos aportan calidez al cuerpo con su vibrante energía yang. Descubriréis la amplia variedad de aromas y sabores de esta categoría aparentemente muy bien conocido por su nombre pero raramente comprendido en su rica complejidad.
Limited Seating. Reserve at Čaj Chai Barcelona. Price: 18€ or 15€ for Čaj Chai Club members. Your participation grants you a 10% discount on all of your tea and tea accessory purchases made on the day of the event.

Tasting Oolong Teas from China and Taiwan.
Saturday, November (10:00 – 12:00)

El té azul o té oolong se define como té semi-oxidadado, por lo que es la categoría de té más amplia ya que recoge todos los colores y matices entre el té verde y -lo que nos acostumbramos a llamar- el té negro. En esta degustación probaremos un gran abanico de muy selectos tés oolong de China y Taiwan. En otoño y invierno apetecen mucho los tés de mayor oxidación como ciertos tés oolong, té rojo (hong cha) y té negro (hei cha). Bajan las temperaturas y los tés de mayor oxidación nos aportan gran calidez al cuerpo con su vibrante energía yang. Por esta razón nos enfocaremos más en los tés oolong de media y alta oxidación o tueste y menos en los tés oolong de baja oxidación. Descubriréis la amplia variedad de aromas y sabores de esta categoría tan amplia.
