Chinese Tea and Culture

One of the primary reasons I was drawn to China was for its traditional culture. Since I began studying Chinese language and history, I have acquired a great deal of appreciation and interest in this country’s cultivated arts and time-honored ways of life. An aspect I’m particularly fond of, as mentioned in my last story, is one of the enduring ancient arts that can still be enjoyed today: tea. 

My Trip to the Guilin Tea Institute

Last Friday I had the privilege of visiting the Tea Science and Research Institute of Guilin, Guangxi (广西桂林茶叶科学研究所). Through a friend of a friend, a couple of my buddies and I were able to spend a beautiful autumn afternoon on a special tour of the Tea Institute’s facilities and fields. What’s more, as a self-proclaimed tea enthusiast, I was particularly excited for the outing and could not have thought of a better way to enjoy the local scenery and weather.
