On The Land Of Xiang Tu > Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves

Explore folk customs and capitalism in Yunnan and learn practical approaches to evaluating aged and rare puer offerings.

What You'll do

We explore the folk customs specific to Yunnan, China’s most diverse province and discuss the transformative role capitalism played in making Puer tea one of the most valuable in the industry. We offer a practical approach to choosing and evaluating Puer tea informed by distinct value indicators of aged and “rare” Puers.

Rong
Co-founder, Shifting Senses
"Curiosity is the beginning of understanding." says Rong Gao of her approach to tea. Born in China, she spent her formative years in her family teahouse, or as she puts it: "Tea is in my roots."

Weaving inherited cultural wisdom with her interests in anthropology, history, traditional medicine, economics and spirituality, Rong leads our Destination Tastings experiences, using intimate, first-person storytelling to illuminate and bring context to the breadth and complexity of Chinese culture over tea.
Levi
Co-founder, Shifting Senses
"When I get quiet enough to listen, tea can tell me so much about who I am. It connects me to the past, and the stories it carries hold a mirror to the present."

An inveterate coffee drinker turned lao cha gui, Levi searches to locate commonalities between seemingly disparate concepts and tea one sip at a time.
