The afternoon and evening of March 18, 2019.
After lunch, we were shuttled to Mingwei Tea Factory to witness the Shouting Ceremony and visit Mingwei Tea Fields, Museum and Tea Factory. You can watch the videos, but understand I am definitely not a professional videographer and these are just snippets of the ceremony. They closed the roads so our motorcade of shuttles could drive without stopping. We had so many pictures taken of us, interviews for tv & newspapers, and they even offered to peel oranges for us. After the ceremony, we were shuttled to the Mingwei Tea factory and Museum.
When we got back we had a huge dinner. There was a vegetarian table where I was sitting with a few people from Nepal, Sri Lanka, and a lady from Germany about 7 people in total. It was nice because whenever there was a vegetarian table Tuba the lady from Germany and I would look for each other to make sure we were sitting at the correct table.
