Learning about another country isn’t complete without exploring its local food and cuisine. When our family visited Beijing, we visited an authentic Chinese tea house and this lady gave a fascinating Tea 101 talk and demo. She was quite entertaining that till today, Reese remembers “oolong tea” as her favorite kind.
The boys holding up a ceramic token given to us called “peepee boy”. He sprays out the tea when the water reaches a certain temperature. Of course the kids were amused.
On another night, we decided to take the kids on an adventure and so we walked to a food market which Tristan, our tour guide mentioned to us. Having just set up Mercato at that time, we wanted to experience a food market in this part of the world.
This food trip also ranked high in our kids’ travel memory bank!
