Hong Kong & Xiamen, China October 3 - 14, 2013
Darrell and I were invited to attend the Xiamen International Tea Industry Fair in Xiamen, China, which was held October 10-13, 2013.  Wingchi Ip, a dear friend of Darrell's since 1992,  hosted us in Hong Kong from October 4 - 9, 2013.  Wingchi is the owner of Lock Cha Tea Shop and Lock Cha Tea House in Hong Kong , and is also a consultant to the Tea Fair in Xiamen, China.  After our visit to Hong Kong, the three of us then flew to Xiamen together to see the Fair.  I took the opportunity to document the 12 day adventure in this video/photo blog. There is much to see of our travel, dining, and interactions during the trip.  I hope you enjoy following along, as the adventure was wonderful, but the real pleasure is sharing the experience.

Here is a short video tease trailer of the experiences we had in Hong Kong and Xiamen, China. If it intrigues you, I think you'll find this blog to be interesting, educational, and  fun. Hopefully it will leave you with a sense of having been along for the ride.
