Spring in Alishan

Tai-He village
Today, I've added the first spring 2016 Oolongs to my selection. This season is delayed by 2 weeks approximately, compared to last year. The Jinxuan Oolongs have already been harvested and now they are starting to pick the Qingxin Oolong in Alishan.
The Oolong harvest starts at the bottom!
I'll post more pictures and will add more teas next week. In the meantime, I'm going to a tea culture fair in Emei Shan, Sichuan Province!

Hi Stephane,
I've been reading your blog for some time now (excellent work!) and I was wondering what your thoughts are on this article:

Sorry, I didn't know where else to post this question. It was surprising to read that the government is cutting down high mountain tea farms. It mentions how some areas are affected and others are not, can you comment on this?
