We have a deeper understanding of Lueyang tea than others while we finished the work, its production method, variety, taste, eat, even a simple tea pot, have impressed us. My hometown is great, the traditional home bred Food is unique, and in addition to the tea, there are many foods worth us to study. We think this is not only a competition, but also a cultural transmission and inheritance.
