What is Qingming?

Qingming Festival (also called Tomb Sweeping Day or, literally, 'Pure Brightness' Festival in English) is a traditional Chinese festival and an important day for most people, including the Han Chinese and some of China's 55 other ethnic minorities, to commemorate their ancestors. This year Qingming begins April 4th. From that date temperatures begin to rise and rainfall increases, indicating that it is the crucial time for plowing and sowing in the spring. The festival, therefore, has a close relationship with agriculture. However, it is not only a seasonal symbol; it is also a day of paying respect to the dead, a spring outing, and other activities.

We as individuals are responsible for the respect paid to our ancestors. Most of us observe the birth and death dates of loved ones with prayers, food offerings, and other rituals. During this time many families are coming together in person or virtually to honor their loving connection and shared values. We raise the teacup to pray for a better world.

“Your life is what your thoughts make it.” –Confucius.

Alishan Supreme Oolong Tea

 

High Mountain Oolong 

Pu-Er Black Tea is unique in that it gets better with age, much like wine. It initially starts out as a green tea but is not fully fired. Instead, the moist leaves are loosely stacked on top of each other to allow to dry and age. The result is a color change from green to a deep burgundy. Supreme Pu-Er has a more fragrant earthy aroma than other Pu-Er.
