Our Holiday 2014 China Sourcing Trip

“Join us on our tea adventures in China! From November 17th to December 3rd, we will be documenting the end of the Autumn harvest in Anxi and Wuyi, visiting with Mr. and Mrs. He in Laoshan Village, working with Master Han in Qianjiazhai, meeting new partners, sourcing teaware and continuing our research on tea house culture and promoting transparency in the tea industry.

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
