Wuyi Mountains, the results are in

We’ve been working out the totals and making a random draw for our trip to Wuyi this Spring. We’ve increased the draw to four people & sent emails to those who’s names were picked. If any of the people who have been picked can’t make it, we’ll continue the draw and select the next name at random.

Congratulations to those who have been picked. We have quite a diverse international lineup – one from Germany, Luxembourg, USA and France. We had a lot of interest, it’s a pity that the spaces are so limited. We’d love to be able to invite more of you to join us. If this trip works out well, we may consider organising more trips in the future years- perhaps to the tea mountains in Yunnan also.

Thank you all for your support. I hope you’ve enjoyed watching Master Huang in the video. Hopefully this Spring I’ll have the chance to film some more footage.

This is part of our month focussing on Wuyi Yancha. We’re offering three of our customers the chance to come with us next Spring to the Wuyi mountains. All you need to do is arrive at Wuyi airport and we’ll take care of the rest. You’ll stay with Master Huang’s family in beautiful surroundings, eat delicious food, have the chance to learn first-hand about the processing of Yancha, drink and compare different varietals. For those interested in Wuyi yancha, this is a trip of a lifetime.

Each purchase of 100g of any of our Wuyi rock teas before the end of the month will count as one entry into our competition. Three winners will be chosen at random to join us. Good luck! We’re really looking forward to it.
