Traditional tea ceremony in Ladakh

Caption: In 1856 two Moravians missionaries, Eduart Pagell and Wilhem Heyde, make their way into Tibet. They create a mission in Leh (Ladakh) and study the Tibetan language and culture. In 1901, the Moravian bishop La Trobe visits the small Christian community. Pastor Hettasch, Dr Marx and their spouses organize a traditional tea ceremony to his intention. Until this day the small community of Leh, consisting of about a hundred members, is the only Christian presence in Tibet.
