Splendor of Taiwan introduced the Lunar New Year and tea culture at the Tracy Gee community Center

@

With the Lunar New Year being around the corner, Splendor of Taiwan of the Houston Culture Center went to The Tracy Gee Community Center on January 26th to introduce the New Year as well as the tea culture of Taiwan. Over 30 attendees there also got the chance enjoying the hot tea provided by the tea master, and the famous Taiwanese pineapple cakes.

The volunteer first introduced the background of Lunar New Year and some stories from ancient time. With the vivid images of the informative slide show, all of the attendees felt amazed by the legends of "Nien". Then the general introduction provided many interesting details about firecrackers, red envelopes and the big dinner on New Year's Eve. The volunteer also explained why and how Taiwanese have rice cake, dumplings, fish, whole chicken prepared on the table for Lunar New Year, and even fruits like pineapple or orange have their own meanings during this period of time !  

When tea masters prepared the tea, some attendees took their cell phones to record it. They were curious about the tea and each step of the preparation. They later found both of the tea and pineapple cakes wonderful. And the Deputy Director Natalie Li of The Culture Center toasted everyone with the tasty Taiwanese tea and represent Director, Ms. Chuang to wish all a happy lunar new year!

There were also lots of discussions between volunteers and attendees, the attendees in the end happily thanked the Houston Culture Center and Splendor of Taiwan for this great and fun experience!
