If you are considering Chinese dating or you have already begun a romantic relationship with someone in China, chances are you might be packing your bags and heading there to meet that special someone in person.
The thing is, if you are planning a trip to China – especially for the first time – you may want to take in some local festivals to learn a little more about the country’s culture and customs. This can also help make Chinese dating a little easier, since it is always a challenge when two people from different cultures meet and fall in love.
The Shanghai International Tea Culture Festival is a great opportunity to spend a romantic day with your betrothed while learning a little bit more about her culture. The festival has taken place in Shanghai annually since 1994 throughout the month of May and has gained international recognition for its fusion of traditional Chinese culture with national specialty. Every year, thousands of tea enthusiasts, experts, and tea producers attend, making it an ideal date event.
With a theme of expressing emotion through tea and learning about it, this festival is completely focused on tea culture. The festivities include the likes of a tea art contest, tea panel discussions, tea art talks, tea set auctions, and plenty of tastings.
While in town for the Tea Culture Festival, it is a great opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of Shanghai – a fantastic city – so plan accordingly and get your passport ready!
*If you are interested in attending the festival, it takes place at Shanghai Difute International Tea Culture Square, Zhongshan North Road in Shanghai.
