Pink in the Tea Village


I've always been a big fan of green tea but my appreciation of the beverage was greatly increased after visiting a Chinese tea village in Hangzhou where tea is grown, harvested, and prepared. During the second day of our tour, we had an early breakfast (which was always at 6:30 am as we had to board our bus by 7:30 am to 8 am) and were driven for about an hour from our hotel before we arrived at our destination. Although we were subjected to an hour long demonstration and advertising spiel from a tea salesperson, we did enjoy some fantastic longjiang cha! As well, the tea village itself was incredibly picturesque and definitely emphasized the best features of Chinese decor and landscaping. Take a look below and you'll see what I mean!



By that point, I fully realized how much I had under packed for the week-long trip; I really had to be creative with my outfits if I wanted my clothes to last for seven days. Since doing laundry was not an option, I had to pick and choose carefully. On this particular day, I opted for this pink skirt and decided to all-out by pairing it with a pink tee. Anyways, I certainly got a few comments on my rather bright palette choice from several friends.

One thing that really surprised me on this trip was observing how crazily dressy Chinese tourists are! For the hottest days and in the most crowded areas, you could see many women dressed to the nines in flowing maxi dresses, lace tops, and heels. Even when walking up long flights of stairs, you could see these ambitious women carrying umbrellas to shade themselves from the sun and wearing embellished high-heeled sandals. They made me feel quite under-dressed!
