Happy Lucky’s Tea House Hosts Tea Club for Book Lovers

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane

Happy Lucky’s Teahouse is hosting a very special Pu-er tea tasting event on February 27 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm in the Old Town teahouse (236 Walnut Street).


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 bestseller. Five rare and sought-after Pu-er teas, including Sweet Clarity — it’s Truly Simple Elegant in the book— will be served and guests will be offered a discount on loose leaf tea purchases. This party is especially appealing to book clubs, and especially for book clubs that have read The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane and have an interest in learning more about Pu-er tea.

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane follows Li-yan, whose family has been farming tea for generations. When she conceives a child out of wedlock, Li-yan rejects custom that requires the child be killed and instead abandons her — with a cake of Truly Simple Elegant Pu-er tucked in her blanket — on the steps of an orphanage in a nearby city. The story explores the amazingly 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.


Space is limited for this event. Tickets will sell out quickly and are available through Happy Lucky’s Facebook page and Eventbrite.
