It’s no secret that I have been very much liking the tea ceremonies here in Shanghai. One Saturday afternoon I was walking with my brother near the Bund, checking out the sights and enjoying the great weather. Soon two girls approached us, one of them was out of town and the other was living here and they were just about to head attend a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. The girls tell us that they don’t have much money, and it would be great to go to the ceremony together to keep funds low. The girls seemed very sweet and genuine, great actors, but we didn’t trust the situation. We decided to just check the ceremony out, just to peek at the space, and then we left much to their dislike. If we would have stayed there and had a ceremony with our new ‘friends’ we would have had to pay a lot after completion of the ceremony.
