Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day Mothers are a gift from heaven, taking care of the smallest of things and spreading happiness and love in our lives. Wing Hop Fung celebrates mother's day with powerful health benefits.

 

Mother’s Day became an official U.S. holiday in 1914, but it is a time honored tradition with a long cultural and political history which remains unknown. Honoring motherhood goes back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. One modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival “Mothering Sunday” the fourth Sunday in Lent when the faithful returned to their “mother church”—the main church in the vicinity of their home—for a special service. 

Mother’s Day became political during the 19th century. In the years before the American Civil War, Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia started “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs” to teach local women how to properly care for their children and in 1868 Jarvis organized “Mothers’ Friendship Day,” at which mothers gathered with former Union and Confederate soldiers to promote reconciliation. Abolitionist and suffragette Ward Howe in 1870  wrote the “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” that called mothers to unite in promoting world peace.

West Lake Longjing Green Tea Gift Set

We have special tea gifts for all occasions. Longjing translated as “Dragon’s Well” green tea originates from the mountains surrounding West Lake in the Zhejiang province of China. According to legend, the tea was named because a dragon that lived in a well near West Lake Village saved the village by bringing rain after a long drought.

The leaves are hand-fired in a large wok immediately after picking and have an appearance of smooth flat green leaves with pointed ends. The tea color is clear not cloudy. The brewed tea is very fragrant, mild tasting and bright yellow green. The taste is refreshing, sweet and nutty, smooth and rich with slight vegetal undertones. 

 

Yixing Clay Tea Set

 

The fine art of Chinese tea culture is typically enjoyed with a few friends in which the tea is steeped and poured at the table with an elegant ritual. The Yixing [E-Shing] clay teapot, first designed during the Ming dynasty (1368 – 1644), came from the area of the great lake in the Jiangsu province around 100 miles from Shanghai. Yixing teapots are intended for pu-erh, black, and oolong teas. A famous characteristic of Yixing teapots is their ability to absorb trace amounts of brewed tea flavors and minerals into the teapot with each brewing. Over time, each Yixing teapot its own unique interior coating that flavors and colors future brewed teas.
