Xiao Hong, Green Bamboo’s tea specialist and a tea connoisseur in Hangzhou city, believes that making tea is more than pouring hot water into a cup of tea leaves. According to Xiao Hong a qualified tea specialist should go through years of training and should also study the different methods of pouring water, how to keep balance while pouring water and the different seated positions too. Besides this she also says you should have abundant knowledge about tea leaves, tea space design, tea table design, tea teaism, tea planting and tea garden management.  A visit to this teahouse and you are sure to acquire a thirst for the knowledge of tea.
