A Bite of Beijing Culture

2014-01-29 15:04:01



With China's Year of the Horse soon to gallop in, Beijing Monthly together with the Beijing International Culture Association on January 26 hosted the "Experience Beijing - Temple Festival during Chinese New Year" affair at Qianmen's Laoshe Teahouse as part of the "Beijing Salon - Experience Beijing" event series. The activity intended to give non-Beijingers, both foreign and Chinese this time around, a snap bite of the city's traditional culture. A Beijing Opera performance, a time-honored tea ceremony and a tasting of local snacks hailing from the nation's former imperial court kitchens all set out to cater visitors with your typical Chinese New Year's atmosphere.
