It’s funny how a whim can lead to a grand adventure. My desire to travel off-the-beaten-track to Feng Qing in Yunnan was simply based on having tasted a delicious Feng Qing black tea and deciding ‘I want to go see how they make this!’ In a province overwhelmingly focused on (and famous for) pu’erh tea, this little bastion of black tea production quite intrigued me.
After being forbidden entry and unable to see the tea being made in the main Dian Hong tea factory, I was a little despondent. I decided to hike into the hills.. and stumbled across these beautiful tea gardens!
