Spring Tea Trip 2014: Handmaking Tie Guan Yin and Rou Gui

It’s official, Shunan will be returning from China on the 27th! Nicole leaves the next day for World Tea Expo in California and we’ll be sure to share some her experiences here on the blog. In the meantime, here are some pictures that Shunan sent of herself handmaking Tie Guan Yin and Rou Gui.

She picked 3 kilograms of leaves to produce only 1lb of Tie Guan Yin. She made it in the most traditional way possible, foot rolling! Almost all tea is rolled by machine these days.

We’ll have a lot more to share from Shunan’s trip once she returns. Getting internet in China has been next to impossible.
