Durand-Hedden is thrilled that Xiuqin "Qin" Zhai (pictured above) will lead visitors in a Chinese tea demonstration and tasting on Sunday, May 19, at the Durand-Hedden House as part of our All the Tea: From China to New Jersey Open House. This unique event will honor Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. She will be assisted by Susan Li.

Qin is a professional Tea Artist and Tea Evaluator, also known as a Sommelier, based in Millburn, NJ. She represents Pu’er Tea Culture. Her motto is "One Cup of Tea."

The day's events will also include a reenactment of a colonial-era tea by Eliza Vincz-Lichack of Ministers of Apollo at our historic hearth as well as children's activities and an exhibit on this history of tea from China to eighteenth-century New Jersey.

Registration is free and is appreciated. Just visit our event page.
