Ada: “Tea is my religion”

 

8 of 10 pages

 

Except for some escapades to Yunnan plantations where she sporadically goes to buy tea for her studio, Ada’s daily life has no major changes, it’s very structured. Everyday, she practices Tai Chi at Jing’An Park which is very close to her home.

In China it’s very common to practice this traditional martial art first thing in the morning; city squares and gardens are full of people practising it either for health reasons, as a relaxation method or to meditate, like Ada does.Once her Tai Chi is over, she buys some vegetables, eats in her apartment and then goes to her studio, and is in this moment when her life really begins. Her daily life may seem rutinary, but Ada explains that she travels inside herself when she thinks about tea, just in the same way as many people travel to gain experiences.
