Mid-April, my attention turns to China

Posted in Country : China by François-Xavier Delmas | Tags : , , , , ,

Every year, in mid-April, my attention turns to China. This is the time when production starts of the magnificent China green teas such as Long Jing, Bi Luo Chun and Bai Mao Hou. Right now I’m not far from Suzhou, on the shores of Lake Taihu.

Every day I do my best to sleep in the middle of the tea fields. And this is the kind of view I get when I wake up.

  • Beautiful view! I’ve only recently been following your blog and it’s been an eye-opener to see all the beautiful places you’ve been to.
    I’m in the process of opening a premium “western” tea shop in China and hope things will work out to have your brand of teas in my shop. There is a lack of top international tea brands here in China and I hope to be able share my passion with consumers here.
    Keep the great photos rolling in!!

  • Spectacular!

  • Good luck for your project, Kenneth, and thanks to both of you, Kenneth and Steph, for your compliments !
