This is my final blog from my trip to China, and I have to say I am a little sad.
Yesterday I had my last lesson of the Oolong teas. I learned a lot about the different rock teas and tasted some teas from the spring picking. It is hard to write down all that I learned in one blog. My notes will help me with my tea presentations though and I can pass on what I have learnt that way. Speaking of, my next presentation will be at the MASshop in Antwerp, Belgium on 26th May and June 2nd, maybe I will see you there?
One thing I did learn that I still can’t quite believe is, did you know that there are 600 different oolong rock teas? I was proud that I knew about a dozen but 600?!! The most famous four are Da Hong Pao, Tie Luo Han, Bai Ji Guan and Shui Jin Gui. These teas are famous in China for clearing your mind and giving you energy!
As I said in one of my first blogs, I will never know it all! There are still many tea gardens to visit, many mountains to climb…but I will be back for the next picking season!
So, today it is my last day! I had a great time like always and I thank all the people who made it great! I can’t wait to come back because I already have a new tea road in mind!
So, thanks for reading these blogs, I hope you liked them and maybe they have given you the desire to visit this land of tea, amazing China!
Bye for now, hope to see you soon in the MASshop!
