Inspired by Lisa See’s novel, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, Tea Club for Book Lovers is an opportunity to learn more about the history and making of Pu-er, the tea featured in this New York Times best seller.
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane follows the life of Li-yan who rejects custom that requires her child born out of wedlock should be killed and instead abandons her — with a cake of Truly Simple Elegant Pu-er tucked in her blanket. The story explores the parallel lives of Li-yan and her daughter Haley, who was adopted by a California couple, as they search for meaning in the study Pu-er tea.
Five rare and sought-after Pu-er teas, including Sweet Clarity — it’s Truly Simple Elegant in the book— will be served at the event and guests will be offered a discount on loose leaf tea purchases.
Date & Time Feb.27, 6:30-8 p.m.
