Multicultural Event «Tea Ceremony – Art and Ritual»

On May 22, 2017 the Library hosted a multicultural event «Tea Ceremony – Art and Ritual» on the occasion of the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development.

The hosts of the event spoke about how tea had become more than just a symbol of hospitality and talking with friends, how it had turned out to be the most popular drink in the world, and how it had been interwoven in national cultures, flavors and everyday life of different countries.

Foreign students from Vitebsk State Academy of Veterinary Medicine and Vitebsk State University named after P. Masherov spoke about the tradition of tea drinking in China, Lebanon and Kazakhstan. Students from Vitebsk State Polytechnic Professional Lyceum described the traditions of tea drinking in Slavic cultures, and showed how one could prepare tea cocktails. The benefits of tea were highlighted in the presentation made by students of Vitebsk State Medical College, and the trio of psaltery players «Sadko» adorned the event with musical folk couplets about tea.

A book exhibition «What a wonder is that tea» had been arranged in the meeting hall where the event took place.
