We have the pleasure to announce several talks on tea by Malaysian tea master Lim Ping Xiang in June. We’ve been trying to arrange for Master Lim to visit the UK for some time now and have recently finalised the dates of his visit and booked his flights.
Master Lim is widely regarded in Malaysia as being the grandfather of the modern tea movement there, introducing and promoting the appreciation of puerh tea, Wuyi yancha and Liu Bao teas to many. He has over 40 years of experience with fine Chinese teas, beginning his journey as a tea merchant in Kuala Lumpur before giving up his commercial interests in tea to become solely a teacher of tea. His down-to-earth manner and willingness to share make him a wealth of information for those interested in tea.
Some interviews with Master Lim can be found in The Leaf, The Art of Tea magazine and Puerh Teapot magazine.
Master Lim will give two talks in London, to be held in Postcard Teas (22nd & 23rd June 2012), then two talks the following week in Cornwall (venue and dates to be confirmed). He plans to discuss the appreciation of fine teas, including Wuyi Yancha, Puerh tea and Gongfu brewing. The talks in Postcard Teas will be limited to 20 people per day and tickets will be on sale in Postcard teas and via our website. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go towards the venue costs and towards Master Lim’s travel costs.
For those in the UK, this is a wonderful chance to learn from and ask questions in a small group setting to one of the world’s foremost experts in Chinese teas.
