Hillard Gold ’39 Lecture Presents: James Norwood Pratt, The Energy & Cult of Tea

October 24, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Relax over refreshing yet stimulating cups of tea and join the discussion of “The Energy & Cult of Tea” with America’s leading tea lover, UNC Honors Laureate James Norwood Pratt. With books translated into multiple languages and numerous videos, interviews and articles in US and overseas media, Norwood is quite possibly the world’s most widely read and best-known authority on tea and tea lore. Since his often revised classic, The Tea Lover’s Treasury, first appeared in 1982, he has been an inspiring presence on the international tea scene. He has served as Honorary Director of America’s first traditional Chinese tea house and as an International Juror for India’s first Golden Leaf tea competition. At the World Tea Expo in 2015, he received the John Harney Lifetime Achievement Award. Come and enjoy meeting and hearing America’s acknowledged Tea Sage James Norwood Pratt. The Hillard Gold ’39 Lecture was established by alumni James and Jonathan Gold to honor the memory of their father, Hillard Gold, a member of the UNC Class of 1939.
