The biggest problem is how to surviving from the writing class. I would like to say do everything early instead of wait until last 1min. Also you should always talk with your professor. At the beginning I have problem to write a two page paper. But now I could write 5 pages essay with not problem. As an international student, I would like to say go to the writing center ask for help. The people in there is really helpful. I have learned a lost from there. I satisfies with my participation in the class. I always answer th question from the professor. I also talk about my own opinion with other students I really like that. Sad part is I didn’t get chance to bring Mongolian milk tea to class.

I WENT to Tea Obreht’s lecture today. She shared some chapter in her book with.
Such a good memory, I learned more about Japanese culture. I draw a picture about tea ceremony
According to my understanding, I think during that time people in Britain think that China tries to do monopoly and they think whoever has the tea means that who have power. They understand the long history of tea in China. They begin to understand Chinese culture. But there is one part I have confused which is at page 180 writer talks about tea during Tang Dynasty, but he put a picture about making tea in Qing Dynasty. I don’t know why. At the beginning tea in Europe was very expensive., only rich people are able to buy them, so tea means power and money. I can feel from the poem, people in Europe really love tea.
China did a monopoly in order to take control of the tea. British also want earn the money in this tea trade. So the opium happened. British send opium to China. Lots of people were addicted, people begin to against it. Such as I part I read, Chinese people use stone as a weapon throw it to the British finally police stopped them. Opium War ended by Lin Zexu’s Destruction of opium at Humen. This is a war begin by tea trade and two sides of people want to get money and power from trade.

Thank you for sharing tea with us. I learned a new way to make tea. Also, that is my first time see it. I learned other than white tea, black tea, red tea, green tea, there is yellow tea. I really like them. XiHu Longjing is my favorite kind of tea. DianHong is the new tea I had. I really enjoy this tea tasting.
