Fujian Trip Year 6 & 7 - Updates 30 October 2019

This was the last night on the trip! We had a very relaxing day in a mountain village of Chuxi (初溪). It's hard to imagine anyone bothering the Hakka refugees three hundred years ago in a place so secluded as this.

Today was all about tea! We woke up to a nice breakfast prepared by our gracious hosts, the Xu family. Quickly took some group photos and set off by bus to the tea plantation.

There we first learned how to identify high quality tea leaves (one bud two leaves 一芽两叶) and then went out to pick them. Students moved through the fields purposefully plucking leaves amongst the beautiful scenery and some of them really impressed me with their gardening knowledge! 

After tea picking we got together for eating fruit and learning how to pour tea. Once the students learned how to pour we all sampled three kinds of tea and rated them based on their clarity, fragrance, taste and preferences. Our students very much liked the Tieguanyin (铁观音).

In the afternoon we hopped on a bus to Zhangzhou (漳州) and checked into the hotel. After some down time we surprised the students with a pizza dinner to reward them for embracing diversity by trying the local food. All students are lights out in their rooms and ready for our last day!
