Mr. Li is a local tea farmer who gave Grade 8 a mini-training in how to pick the best leaves. After they had collected for an hour, each group dumped out their leaves in front of him and Mr. Li gave a rating on a scale of thumbs up to thumbs down. Then Mr. Li guided us through a traditional tea ceremony. Students had a first hand experience of what goes in to the tea industry. This helps them develop knowledge, empathy, and reflect on their hard work.
