We traveled to a slightly higher altitude to see the tea plantation and pick tea. The best tea leaves are the ones with one sharp (unfurled) and one normal leaf. We then 'cooked' the leaves to dry them in an open pit/wok thing. We had to wear gloves so our hands wouldn't get scorched, and we picked up leaves, dropped them back in, and repeated the process until we burned them. Yes, we burned tea leaves. Before they became burnt however, a lovely smell wafted out the pit/wok from the tea leaves.
Next, we went on a short hike to a small waterfall. Though the hike wasn't particularly steep and had stone steps for you to step on, the altitude made it diffucult. The water near the fall was tinged green, but I don't know why. I tried skipping stones, and got one plop (that means it didn't skip). We looked around for a while. I ate a rice cake made of corn.
We also viewed a simplified tea ceremony, and tried black tea and green tea. I prefered the green tea, which was bitter when you first taste it, but leaves a sweet aftertaste after it's swallowed. The red tea was sweeter at first, but didn't leave such a pleasurable aftertaste. It was interesting to see.
