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

There is a possibility that I might be in Shanghai and Yixing this spring. Fingers crossed.
