Lessons With a Master

There’s a term in Chinese, Chá rén (茶人), literally “tea person“, that succinctly sums up someone who’s life seems to revolve around tea, and no-one better represents the concept than Master Lin Ping Xiang.

I first came across the name of Master Lin Ping Xiang after watching a video of a talk he gave to Global Tea Hut members when they were visiting Wuyi mountain in May 2015…

He came across as not only exceptionally knowledgeable on the subject of tea, but also as great fun to be around!

Intrigued, I decided to dig a little deeper.

In the YouTube sidebar there was a link to a talk he gave in Chinese with English subtitles on the subject of Liu Bao tea – you can find it here…

I also managed to find out that Global Tea Hut’s in-house magazine “Tea and Tao” had detailed Master Lin’s life and tea journey.

Global Tea Hut kindly make past issues of their magazine freely available for download – the archive can be found here. The articles featuring the life and work of Master Lin are in the May 2015 issue.

I’ve found that in the tea world it’s a good idea to consider yourself the eternal apprentice, always open to learning.

In Master Lin you have a chance to learn from one of the very best teachers, so put the kettle on, and find out something new…

    I really enjoy learning more from different people. Having informal gong fu learning sessions is such a pleasure. Totally agree- there is always so much more to learn.
