Whether you are simply a tea-lover, like me, or you are a tea professional looking to source tea and further expand your knowledge of the tea industry in China, this trip is for you! It’s sure to be an informative and fun journey for all.
Space is limited and a small percentage of participants will be able to extend their trip beyond the scheduled 10-days. The key is to register early (prior to May 15, 2007) to take advantage of an early-bird discount and have some flexibility in your return flight.
