SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— I just got back from the International Tea Forum at Xiamen, China and it was a remarkable experience. Xiamen is about 300 miles north of Hong Kong. We flew into Hong Kong near the tail-end of the pro-Democracy demonstrations, so we didn’t get to see much of that, but what I did see was impressive.
The sheer size of the exhibition center for the forum was one million square feet. The event was comprised of the tea fair as well as the Buddhist arts fair and a small Buddhist food center. San Francisco’s Moscone Center would fit into a small corner of this place.READ MORE: COVID: California To Set Aside 40% Of Vaccine Doses For State's Most Vulnerable Neighborhoods
