Yangzhou is a city in Jiangsu province renowned for its long history, picturesque scenery, laid-back lifestyle and zaocha culture. Literally translated as "morning tea", zaocha offers locals the prospect of a pleasant morning spent sipping aromatic tea and sampling tasty delicacies.
Wu Dadong, one of the top tea tasters in China, said that as the public awareness of tea culture has been increased in recent years, more platforms and activities are required for Chinese tea-growers to expand in domestic and foreign markets.
