From a press release:

As part of its Arts Engage initiative, the Lackawanna County Arts and Culture Department is sponsoring “The Art of Chinese Tea Ceremony” featuring Dr. Kathy Wang, an authority on the subject, in Shopland Hall at the Scranton Cultural Center on Sunday, Sept. 12 at 3 p.m.

Tea ceremonies have been performed in China for centuries and are an integral part of Chinese culture. These activities focus on slowing down and appreciating the moment, promoting relaxation and well-being. This is especially important as the public faces mental health issues during the ongoing pandemic.

The program will include a presentation on the history of the Chinese tea ceremony, tea samples, and a Guzheng, or Chinese zither performance, by Dr. Wang.

All current guidelines by the CDC and the state will be strictly followed at the Scranton Cultural Center (420 N. Washington Ave., Scranton), and masks are highly encouraged. Because of COVID-19, space is extremely limited and reservations are required to attend.

To reserve a spot, call 570-963-6590, ext. 3176, or email
