Really great tour! The tea ceremony was very interesting to learn about from the tea master, and was great to be able to taste so many different teas. The tea master and the guide were so friendly and excited for us to be there which made the whole experience even better. I'd definitely recommend it, especially if you're a big tea drinker.
