Six international students from New York University Shanghai (NYU Shanghai) took a trip to Laoximen Tea City on Feb 24 to learn more about traditional Chinese tea culture.

The students were treated to a wide range of tea trivia, from the types and cultivation of Chinese tea to the processing crafts, storing and brewing methods. They also enjoyed sampling the most renowned Chinese teas – oolong, puer, green, yellow, white and black tea.

"The tea tastes so good that I feel totally refreshed," one student said.

The students were also able to bring back some tea as gifts for their friends and families.
