This is the first in a series of photocentric blog posts sharing some of Victoria's adventures for the year!
Here's a look at her journey to Mengding Mountain!
Welcome to Mengding Mountain!
The top of Mengding Mountain can be very misty. This is the home of Meng Ding Gan Lu, otherwise known as Sweet Dew green tea.
At Lingquan Peak stands the 17-foot tall statue of Da Yu (or Yu the Great), the founder of the Xia Dynasty.
Here is our very own Victoria standing in front of the Royal Tea Garden, comprised of the Seven Tea Bushes planted by Wu Lizhen that boast an age of 2,000 years. They were carefully cultivated and picked, starting in the Tang Dynasty, for royal tea offerings.
Here is a beautiful and luscious Meng Ding tea garden.
Finally, some pan-firing of fresh Meng Ding green tea!
