Chinese Tea Culture Tour

Tea is native to China, and Chinese people are believed to have enjoyed tea drinking for more than 4,000 years. The Classic of Tea (Cha Jing),
wrote by Lu Yu, the Tea Sage of China, was considered as the world’s first comprehensive treatise on tea. This little book details rules concerning
various aspects of tea, such as growth areas for tea trees, wares and skills for processing tea, tea tasting, the history of Chinese tea and quotations
from other records, comments on tea from various places, and notes on what occasions tea wares should be complete and when some wares
could be omitted.

Some writers classify tea into four categories, white, green, oolong and black, according to the fermentation level. Others add categories for red,
scented and compressed teas. All of these come from varieties of the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea is the most popular type of tea consumed
in China.

China. During this tour, you will know about Chinese tea culture from following categories:
