Ecological experience was the keynote of the Spring Outing activities in Pengzhou City, where the members of Gochengdu Gusto had fun picking tea leaves at a large tea plantation, watching and getting involved in the tea processing, and tasting organic vegetarian foods.
On the morning of March 28 they arrived in Longfeng Town of Pengzhou City, some 40 kilometers from urban Chengdu. The members were greeted by local tea farmers and sipped the tea made with the freshly picked tea leaves from the plantation. Soon they engaged themselves in picking tea leaves in the plantation, which covers an area of 21 hectares.
Then members started to learn about the tea processing, which involves drying, rocking, frying, rolling and roasting.
At noon, the members had delicious organic vegetarian food for lunch — a feast not only for the mouth but also for the eye. They harvested the garlic sprouts, and watched Sichuan Opera performances by local school students.
Members said they enjoyed the hands-on farming experience very much, which enabled them to have a better understanding of traditional Chinese culture. They were also touched by the hospitality of local farmers and the friendly atmosphere of the group.
