Forty-five tea-making experts from all over the province competed for the "master of tea-making." The top four contestants will represent Anhui to participate in the national finals.
Special frying pans were arranged neatly on the morning of August 24 in Huoshan Sports Center. Forty-five contestants were not afraid of high temperature and competed fiercely in tea-frying skills. In the afternoon, the more difficult tea blending skill was examined. The contestants must firmly grasp the strength and length of the tea aroma, the aroma's type, and the flavor of the tea, such as its intensity, sweetness, and freshness.
