Tea journeys – China
China, the land of tea. The discovery of tea as a beverage dates back as far as five thousand years. The use of the tea plant was documented first in Yunnan, Southern China. Until this day, the tea plant is cultivated and celebrated in different areas of China. And it was this passion that led family Lange, too, to travel to and through China. For over ten years now, Gerhard, Kaspar and Lukas Lange have been travelling for tea. On the one hand to find the best teas, and on the other hand for continuous education, or, simply, to enjoy travellingon its own, as China offers wonderful, diverse landscapes and a really inviting culture of hospitality.
Lukas Lange guides you for ten to fourteen days to and through classic tea cultivation sites in China. The journeys take place during spring (April/May), during the time of harvest. To taste the tea directly at its origin is a special experience for every tea lover.
