Meetup community leaders,

You are invited to this social eventwith other community leaders to learn how we can learn from each other. This event is co-hosted with Silicon Valley Teahouse.

Feb 10th of 2013 is the beginning of new year, according to Chinese Lunar calendar. Each year also has an animal associated with it (there are 12 in all, with the list recycling every 12 years). 2013 is the year of Snake. So let’s get together and have a rousing Chinese New Year celebration-- with tea, of course!

Are you a Snake? Yes, if you were born in 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, and of course this year. According to Chinese tradition, that means you are kind, intelligent, vibrant, introspective and refined. The ancient Chinese believed if there was a snake in the house, the family would always be free from want.

 

Tea is the most popular beverage in China, countless numbers of people like to have their after-meal cup of tea.

In hot summer or warm climate, a cup of tea can dispel the heat and bring on instant cool together with a feeling of relaxation. And medically, the tea leaf contains a number of chemicals, of which 20-30% is tannic acid, known for its anti-inflammatory and germicidal properties.

 

Tea is also the first thing in the first day of New Year. The younger generation will serve tea to the seniors to wish them good health and longevity.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
