Roy has just updated the tea tour itinerary with another once-in-a-lifetime experience, a leisurely bamboo raft ride down Jiu Qu Xi, the nine-bend stream in Wu Yi Shan celebrated for centuries by artists, poets, and tea lovers. Not surprisingly, it's also a Unesco World Heritage Site. As you drift down the famous river you can admire Wu Yi's signature steep cliffs, dotted with caves once occupied by a mysterious prehistoric culture, and smell the fragrant oolong bushes that line the waterway. A trip along Jiu Qu Xi will deepen your understanding of the unique Wu Yi environment that creates one of the world's most enchanting teas, and touch the heart of anyone moved by nature's extraordinary harmony.
