Profile: Peter Micic
Peter Micic, author, musician, explorer, and tea ambassador, spent much of his early life exploring and collecting the living folk music traditions of China working with some of the finest ethnomusicologists in China.
He has taken scores of people across China on culinary, cultural and musical discovery tours since the early 1990s, and accompanied many high-profile people, including writers, composers, chefs and CEOs from all corners of the planet. In recent years, he has become a passionate advocate of teas, especially teas from Yunnan's southwest. He has trekked across some of the world’s most ancient tea forests in Yunnan, and observed first-hand how cultural groups have cultivated, harvested and produced the teas. He has spent time with tea masters and listened to their tea stories. He never leaves home without a supply of tea.
