It was held at the Hangzhou Xixi Creative Industrial Park on April 22, 2017, and more than 200 people from all walks of life attended the activity.

In the morning, Jin Peihua, vice chairman of the Chinese International Tea Culture Promotion Base and vice president of Zhejiang A&F University, announced that the activity had officially began. He thanked the leaders at all levels and “tea people” from all walks of life for their support and help with this activity, and stressed that the base would “stay true to the mission, adhere to the mission, and always carry out the international spread of tea culture”. Subsequently, Li Shengyu, the representative of the UniversalEsperanto Association, Hu Zhengyu, vice secretary-general of the Hangzhou Municipal Party Committee, and Ren Qian, vice editor-in-chief of China Radio International—among others—delivered speeches. 

After the beginning of the event, professor Wang Xufeng, the Executive Director of the base, announced the rating results of the "Tea and Love" International Micro Film Competition. The "Tea and Love" International Micro Film Competition is an important event co-organized by the Tea Culture Base and the Esperanto Association, and conducts international communication and exchange of tea culture in the form of micro films. The activity attracted worldwide attention and the jury received 79 entries from 27 countries in 10 months. The jury finally selected the Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Animation, Best Original Music, Best Actor and Actress, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing, as well as a special prize for the Organizing Committee and for the 10 most popular micro films awarded through a strict review.

To coincide with the activity, organizers asked "Did you have tea today?" on WeChat and Facebook. People from all walks of life, from nearly every race, creed, color and nationality responded in many different languages to answer: "Did you have tea today?". 

Finally, the organizers named 2017 "Zamenhof year" in memory of his contribution to the Esperanto, and also hoped the world’s people used the international mandarin to carry out the equal communication and exchanges in the jasmine fragrance, to contribute to the world peace and tranquility!
