Join intercultural consultant and educator Yvonne Wolf for a traditional Chinese tea demonstration.

According to Confucianism, the art of tea is as much transformative on an introspective level as it is on a ceremonial level. Gain a brief background on the origin of tea and its role in East Asian social interactions, along with its many benefits. Engage in the ritual of tea handling, tea ware function and identification, and proper tea steeping. Yvonne will offer two types of tea tasting, including one non-caffeinated option.

Intercultural consultant and educator Yvonne Wolf delivers presentations that clarify the elements of Chinese culture in an accessible, relatable context. She has given talks at libraries, museums, and community centers. Yvonne's thoughtful consideration serves to enrich her entertaining presentations. Yvonne generously shares the knowledge and skills she has gained from her experiences living in four different countries, where she became fluent in three languages (Chinese (Mandarin), English, and Danish). She worked as a bilingual analyst in a Japanese global corporation in Denmark and a global language trainer in Japan. She has also traveled extensively in the United States. She has ten years of experience working as an organizational consultant in Los Angeles, mediating cross-cultural misunderstandings. She continues her work in the Greater Chicago area.
