|New York 11/27 from 7:30pm – 8:30pm||Taiwan 11/28 from 8:30am – 9:30am|
Every tea plant needs sunlight, soil, and water to grow.
So why doesn’t Master Cai water his plants?
In this session, you’ll hear 2 stories from a retired water painting artist who grows organic tea in central Taiwan.
In the first story, learn why Professor Cai doesn’t need to actively water his tea plants.
Hint: it has to do with how he decided to plant his tea trees.
There are many old tea trees in Professor Cai’s tea garden.
Most trees are 30-40 years old.
Some are 70-80 years old.
Few are 100 years old.
No pesticides nor chemical fertilizers are used to grow tea
His tea garden is home to many insects, birds, and animals.
Professor Cai started his career as an artist.
He drew beautiful watercolor paintings and played Gu Qin.
In the second story, hear how (and why) he decided to retire and become an organic tea farmer.
This online story session will be live-streamed, interactive, and recorded. Participants will get an opportunity to buy organic tea directly from Professor Cai.
