Hakka Culture Experience

Hsinchu is famous for its Hakka culture. To learn a culture well, we must make a experience of their living. Hakka is famous for Pounded Tea, Lei-cha(客家擂茶). Lei cha was meant to taste a bit salty. One first has to put the ingredients into a specially-made mortar, then grounds the ingredients into powder by a pestle. Hot water should be added constantly during the process to make the pulverized tea. Lei-cha can be directly, or can be put into rice and eaten with vegetables or dried radish. Lei cha is meant to derive pleasure through a DIY experience.
