Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about tea. It was just my wife and I so we got a really nice experience watching a tea master make several kinds of tea. It was interesting to see the flavors develop over various rinses and refills. Our favorites were a black smoky tea, and a fresh Jasmine tea. All of the tea was top quality, in fact I'm writing this review while sipping a cup of a fresh tasting green tea we got from the tour, it was harvested only 2 weeks ago! If you enjoy tea and pleasant conversation this is a good tour for you!
