2010 Pu-erh Tea Search Yunnan China
MODERATELY OLD TEA TREES
Driving far beyond the "Tai Di" or plantation-style tea farms into remote areas close to the border of Myanmar, I started to see the old tea trees that I was seeking. Not far from the oldest trees were some younger ones, around 200 years old, that did not look cultivated. It was hard to say if these trees were planted or had grown from random seeds.
