On June 18, the Tea for Harmony Workshop was hosted at the China Cultural Center in Moscow. The event was organized by the Network of International Culturalink Entities (NICE) and the China Cultural Center in Moscow, and co-organized by Zhejiang Provincial Cultural Center.

Feng Litao, director of the China Cultural Center in Moscow, noted in his speech that the traditional Chinese tea ceremony, which was filled with philosophy of life and views of world with Oriental wisdom, always pursued "harmony without uniformity" and "harmonious coexistence". Since the 18th century, the Tea Road has closely connected the peoples of China and Russia, and served as the bridge of cultural exchanges and mutual learning between the two countries. Feng added that the year of 2024 marked the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Sino-Russian diplomatic ties, as well as the first year of the Years of Culture between Russia and China. The China Cultural Center in Moscow would continue to hold more activities with exciting and rich content to better promote the mutual understanding and friendly relation between the peoples of China and Russia.

The event showcased Zhejiang province's intangible cultural heritage items, such as Song Dynasty (960-1279) tea whisking, Hangzhou embroidery and Longquan celadon. The intangible cultural heritage inheritors demonstrated their skills on the site as well as taught the spectators to experience by themselves.

Meanwhile, the performer from Russia played Chinese music on the guqin, a traditional Chinese instrument, on the site, accompanied by the tea-whisking performance of Song Dynasty (960-1279). Ninety-seven exquisite Chinese painting works were also exhibited at the event.
