Taiwan Tea Tour - Day 1

We've arrived in Taiwan. The weather is holding up and we are excited to begin the tea tour!

We started our first day at the famous Wistaria Tea House in Taipei. It was great to be there, relaxing and enjoying some very good teas. We received an excellent tea lecture from Zhou Yu and a delicious meal as well. Here are some photos to share. I will write more about the experience after I get over my jet-lag. Enjoy!
