China - The Tea Spot

 

I recently got the opportunity to go to China with a client of mine, The Tea Spot. Durning the trip we visited several tea farms and processing plants. We spent most of our time roaming around ancient tea harvesting areas in the Yunnan province of China. Every day we would drink some of the most expensive an delicious tea’s in the world. Realizing, how many people it takes for each cup of tea was mind-blowing. Before this trip, I enjoyed a good cup of tea, but I think in many ways I had been missing the point. What I really took away from this trip was a sense of community the tea gave to the locals. Each tea tasting session was long, with multiple steeps, each one tasting different from the last. Much like a great meal, people would sit down and conversate over tea. Not sure why, but this simple act of drinking tea together really resonated with me. Sometimes we simply forget to sit down, and just talk with the ones closest to us. Visiting China has always been on my list of places to visit, and it's still on that list. I'm hoping that the trip was the first of many. I hope you guys enjoy!
