Entrance to the main buildings

The Ten Fu Tea Museum is located on the expressway to Chengdu in Jia Jiang. On September 6, 2008, Southwest Jiaotong University - Emei Branch took its foreign teachers on a cultural trip in the area. Our trip ended at the tea museum where we had a wonderful experience learning about tea.

The following pictures tell of our adventures with tea at the museum:
