Glutton for Punishment

Episode Description

Kung-Fu Tea

The Kung-fu tea (Kungfu cha) ceremony remains an important part of social etiquette in Hangzhou, China. This is no timid tea party though. Combining piping hot tea with martial art moves, it’s more like the flair bartending of caffeinated drinks.

His skills will be critiqued at the Tai Ji Tea House where the tea master expects one thing – precision.
