I will be flying to Beijing in early August. I am planning on moving to southern china in order to teach English. You better believe I will be visiting as many tea houses and tea farms as possible. I am hoping to visit ancient tea trees as well. :D

Will be headed back to the People's Republic of China in October 2015 with a bunch of our undergrad ceramics major students and all the faculty from the ceramics department. We will be in Beijing, Jingdezhen, and Yixing.
