The whole performance was completed in one go, reflecting the splendor of the traditional and ancient Chaoshan tea culture in a sense of ceremony.
During the bursts of tea fragrance, Huang Guixiang, an experiencer from Hebei, told reporters: "Gongfu tea is very different from the northern brewing method. Each process has its own explanation, which is quite difficult, but it makes it difficult. People know more about the development of our traditional tea art."
