He was a photojournalist, often carrying 6 or 7 kilograms of equipment to do 4 or 5 jobs a day. What Ricky Heng didn’t expect is that his life has changed completely because of Chinese tea. After he started drinking Chinese tea, Ricky Heng’s life gradually slowed down. When he drinks tea, he says, he goes into a state of tea meditation, a state where people settle down, feel less trouble, but more wisdom. These days, Ricky Heng is no longer a full-time photojournalist as he is dedicated to promoting tea culture, while his love for photography has not stopped. He often takes photos while drinking tea and then posts his photos and tea tasting tips on social media to share with tea lovers. Many people read his messages and came to tell him about Chinese tea and tea culture. He also made many like-minded friends over tea. According to Ricky Heng, growing tea is a healthy and positive energy, composed by the attitude of modesty, equality, sharing and tolerance. With such a state of mind to live, it will change the way we treat people and do things. Ricky Heng said he was very happy to be a tea cultivation messenger, because tea allowed him to find who he is, and he has no regrets in this life.[Photo/Xinhua]
