The diagram presents the manufacturing process of two types
of tea, pu-erh raw tea and pu-erh ripe tea. Although the first
three stages are the same for both teas, it can be seen that
the methods of production differ in the final stages, which
accounts for the resulting variations in the two teas.
First, the tea leaves that have been picked are pan fried in
order to inactivate the enzymes. Following this, the tea is
rolled and afterwards spread out on a round mat so that it can
dry under the sun. Once it has been dried, the loose raw tea is
ready to be turned into either ripe tea or raw tea. This is
where the process diverges.
To make pu-erh ripe tea, the loose tea is fermented by being
left to mold. Having completed the fermentation stage, the
resulting loose ripe tea is then compressed, after which the
tea is ready for sale. Regarding the alternative process, before
being ready for sale as vintage raw tea, the loose tea is first
compressed, and then left to age by storage.


The flow chart shows how waste paper is
It is clear that there are six distinct stages in
this process, from the initial collection of
waste paper to the eventual production of
usable paper.
At the first stage in the paper recycling
process, waste paper is collected either from
paper banks, where members of the public
leave their used paper, or directly from
businesses. This paper is then sorted by hand
and separated according to its grade, with
any paper that is not suitable for recycling
being removed. Next, the graded paper is
transported to a paper mill.
Stages four and five of the process both involve cleaning. The paper is cleaned and pulped, and foreign objects such as staples are
taken out. Following this, all remnants of ink and glue are removed from the paper at the de-inking stage. Finally, the pulp can be
processed in a paper making machine, which makes the end product: usable paper.


The map illustrates the changes that have occurred in
Templeton, a seaside resort, over a 10 year period
beginning in 1990 and ending in 2005. The most noticeable
change is the replacement of many green areas with
several major infrastructure projects.
To begin, there were several major changes to transport in
the town. An airport has been built beside the river on the
outskirts of the town. In addition to this, a ferry port was
constructed on the far east coastline, with a new railway
extension line passing by the ferry port, continuing along
the coast and crossing over a new bridge so it connects to
the west side of town.
There have also been changes to the business sector in
Templeton. A factory can be seen in the south east of the
town behind the new railway line, and a supermarket has
been built over the river in the west of Templeton, running
alongside a new road.
The residential landscape has also altered, particularly on
the west side of town, where large apartment blocks now
stand in place of the houses.
