Our Spring 2013 China Sourcing Trip

“Join us on our tea adventures in China! From April 15th to May 3rd, we will be documenting the Spring harvest in Longjing and Anxi, picking tea with Mr. and Mrs. He in Laoshan Village, meeting new farmers, sourcing teaware and researching tea house culture and street food.

Verdant Tea is all about strengthening the connection between our farmer friends and tea lovers world-wide. In the spirit of our mission, we are making this trip to China as interactive as possible through daily adventure blog articles, videos and pictures, and interviews with farmers.

I hope that you will follow us through our mailer and social media to get the most out of this tea adventure.”

– David Duckler, Founder
