About the instructor:
Lillian Li is a young talent with a passion to pure teas and tea art. She was born and raised in a very traditional Chinese family in Beijing, China, and she is very keen on traditional Chinese culture. Her late grandfather is a reputable traditional Chinese medicine doctor who taught her Chinese culture and how to keep good health.
She went to a college focused on Chinese culture to learn tea tasting and tea arts and got the Certificate of Tea Tasting and Tea Ceremony (both at senior level). Lillian was among the top 12 in International Tea-brewing Contest in 2015. During the 13 years of practicing tea tasting and tea ceremony, she travelled to more than 40 countries, including major tea-growing regions in southern China, Taiwan, Japan, India and Sri Lanka.
After moving to Vancouver in 2016, she made up her mind to thoroughly dedicate towards tea aesthetics and to bring the purest teas, most traditional tea culture and a healthier lifestyle to North America.
