Guided tour and tea ceremony
Tea drinking was invented in China a long time ago and Chinese tea was one of the most valuable imported goods in early modern Europe. Later, tea also came from India, a consequence of British colonial policy.
During a guided tour in the Botanical Garden, garden educator Steffen Ramm explains the origin of the tea plant and tea as a colonial product. A walk afterwards to the New Chambers raises the anticipation of a tea ceremony at a royal table in the magnificent Blue Gallery with high-quality KPM porcelain and delicious pâtés.
Bernd Maether from the Königliche Tafelfreuden will accompany the tea ceremony with stories about tea and baroque sounds.
In cooperation with the Botanical Garden of the University of Potsdam.
With the kind support of KPM.
As part of the theme year Prince - Emperor - Colonies
