HaiWan Tea Industry—Lao Tong Zhi Series
The first time I got call from Ms Lu Guo Ling because of solar project when I worked in my last company. Her voice sounded clear, bright, humorous, I did not know that she was in her 80s till end of the call when I called her sister Lu, she replied surprisingly,‘What? Sister? I am as old as your grandma.’ The next day we visited Hai Wan Tea Industry as they invited. When I looked at her warm smile, tan skin color and her energetic character, sunshine came into my mind immediately. Although her magnifying glass indicated her age, which she needed for reading anytime, time did not mark on her face at all. Ms Lu Guo Ling liked drink tea very much, and she had a habit to wash face with black broken tea. Tea has maken her ant-aging and gorgeous.
Comparing to Ms Lu’s open-minded, Mr Zou Bing Liang was more likely an folksy wise man. He has contributed his whole life to tea, which might be the main reason why his skin looked like pink. Once people described him as: Just like aging puer, his skin was as charming as red diamond, and as pretty as jade. However, in fact, Mr Zou depends on oxygen respirator for breath sometimes, which he always take with him now. I met some Guang Dong customers that day, I could tell that they admired both of Mr Zou and Ms Lu very much. To fulfill their wish, Mr Zou signed on those 100 piece of tea cakes. It was no hard to see that Mr Zou was a very serious, hard work but pleasant people from merely his way of writing and his signature.
Since then,we contacted Ms Lu many times, and were told that they were on business trips. Although solar project was failed at last, it was my great pleasure to meet Mr Zou and Ms Lu, who were definitely our good examples.
