This year’s tea tour marks 11 years of Seven Cups providing professional-level education on the ground in China.

2018’s tea tour has just passed its first leg, traveling from Kunming into Yunnan’s southern tea producing regions. After days of visiting sheng and shu puer tea producers along their route, the travelers appear to be getting quite adept at evaluating mao cha and pressing their own puer cakes.
The pictures below are roughly chronological and cover the tour’s journey from Jinggu County, on to Jing Hong, and You Le Shan.
