Southwest University invites you to taste the tea and learn more about the history of tea at the Tea Literature Exhibition
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The opening ceremony for the Tea Literature Exhibition started on October 30 at Southwest University.
More than 200 books of tea literature are exhibited in the school library, including the Classics on Tea which makes its first appearance.
The Classic on Tea, the earliest work on tea in ancient China, is recognized as the first book about tea. It consists of ten chapters in three volumes, summarizing the cultivation and processing of tea, the production and use of tea sets, and the skills and requirements of tea cooking before the Tang Dynasty. It is of epoch-making significance, marking the formation of Chinese tea culture.
The event has attracted many teachers and students. The club members led them to brew tea with purple sand pots and make bookmarks.
The program in tea studies was launched in Beibei in 1939, said Tong Huarong, a professor in the Department of Tea Studies at Southwest University. Tea studies are one of the subjects with the longest history at Southwest University, and it is also one of the basic subjects of the School of Food Science, which plays an important role in the research and personnel training in the field of tea science in Southwest China.
At the event, Professor Tong Huarong donated 13 volumes of monographs to the school library on behalf of the Department of Tea Studies. More than 70 volumes of handwritten lecture notes and printed textbooks related to tea studies in the College of Food Science since 1975 were displayed, and scientific research papers and patent achievements were presented on the exhibition boards.
