After eating breakfast we took shuttles to Houtu Tea Factory in Shengzhou. They showed us the factory, gave us a talk, set up a mid-day snack, and a tour of there tea museum. It was a pretty rainy morning, so it was nice that we were inside for it. This is a place that produces gunpowder green tea. Not really in a writing mood today, but it was a lovely day. The afternoon will be talked about next week. Thank you for reading my blog and my trip to China.

The last day in Yibin was filled with exploring the place we had the 1st Confederation of International Tea Smallholders (CITS) Meeting. The place had a greenhouse and tea gardens. We took a tour and were entertained until the meeting. The meeting was informative because we were shaping the documents and the tone of the CITS. Afterward, we had lunch and went to the airport to get on Tibetan Air to Hangzhou.
Was a little sad because we had to say goodbye to some really nice people who were not going to the First International Green Tea Conference in Shengzhou with us. Once we got to Hangzhou we took a bus to Shengzhou where our hotel was. When we arrived we went to our rooms and went to a dining hall to eat a late meal.
The last two photos are the inside of Yibin Airport.
