After understands the long history of the Chinese culture of tea, the Ethiopia participant Sena said:” Today I learned how to pick and process green tea, I even brewed a cup of green tea myself. Before I came here, I would never think that it takes so much hard work to process tea leaves, it’s such a form of art. In my home country, we always drink black tea, but Chinese green tea tastes pretty good too.”
Later, the group traveled to Tianlin Scenic Area by the Tianping Mountain, where small village buildings adorn picturesque surroundings covered with lush trees and flowers that release a rich fragrance through the country air.
