David Mills is from Scotland, the United Kingdom. He came to China in 2006 and so far he has been working in China for 16 years.

Working at Henan University of Technology in Central China's Henan province, David met his colleague Shang Na, a tea lover. They became good friends, fell in love, and then got married.

Fascinated by the profound Chinese tea culture, David has learnt and understood tea ceremony, tea making, Chinese language, etc.

With the encouragement and support from local authorities, David and Shang Na are trying various ways to promote traditional Chinese tea culture such as establishing a website and choreographing tea-themed dances.
