City Intro
Shantou became officially a commercial seaport city in 1861. Shantou reached its peak in commerce and trade in the ‘30s, with a cargo volume of 6.75 million tons in 1933, next only to Shanghai and Guangzhou. People in Shantou therefore have special feelings toward the sea. Along the beach corridor, everywhere we see residents tasting Gongfu tea there. For them, they are not only enjoying tea but also the life-giving sea. The residents always like to show you the process of making Gongfu tea before inviting you to taste the fragrant tea. Afterwards, you will be introduced to different kinds of tea leaves and tea sets to make you more familiar with Gongfu tea culture. Drinking Gongfu tea, as well as making tea, has certain etiquette, and its emphasis on skills qualifies its name. There are special requirements for selection of tea leaves, tea sets, water, heating, the tea-making process and the tea-drinking method.
