Based on Chaoshan Gongfu Tea Culture, the potential chemical resources of Gongfu Tea are deeply excavated and refined into School-based Chemistry curriculum. According to the requirements of students' development core literacy, the key points of curriculum and education plan are effectively combined to design a classroom teaching plan. In practical teaching, first, we start with macro phenomena, analyze the relationship between macro phenomena and molecules, and establish a cognitive model between macro and micro phenomena. Secondly, with the help of the extraction principle of chemicals, students can understand how tea artists use subtle changes in technological conditions and delicate brewing operations to blend the fragrant and delicious Gongfu tea soup. Finally, the intersection between culture and science and the communication between classical philosophy and modern education can not only guide students to explore the scientific truth in culture and cultivate their spirit of advocating science, but also enable them to understand the attitude of Chaoshan ancestors in making tea in the union of heaven and human. In such a way, students can realize that they should strive for excellence in doing things, and create infinite beautiful philosophy of life.
