Mei Zi Qing

We have visited Mei Zi Qing village and tea gardens around in spring 2018. Back then, as puerh market in general was on it's peak , the prices there were unreasonable and we came back with empty hands ( you can read more in article Mang Fei Failure on our blog page ). This year, despite of the very limited harvest due to the dry season , we have managed to get few kg from the farmer who is not having any high expectations / ambitions with growing puerh tea business and offers his mao cha for the price equivalent to the market value with fair labor expenses.

We do not run a marketing concept of " buy this tea to support poor villagers " as we believe the tea drinker should be choosing the tea based on the personal taste preferences and not emotionally by factors of contributing something to somebody. ( there are plenty charity programs for that )
We do not buy tons of tea there anyway, so few cakes would not make any difference though.

The pictures below are for illustrative purposes only , and not for triggering some emotional " must support " feelings. There are quite few tea gardens  around the village , on the slopes mostly  ( as it's optimal for tea trees ) and some of them belong to successful producers who still sell their mao cha for ridiculous prices.

The village itself doesn't have long history of tea planting / harvesting. Officially says to be around 100y , but from what we saw , the tea trees around are not older than 50y ( just our rough estimation ) . In fact , we believe , the most of them are from the first big puerh boom period starting around year 2000 and many other were planted at the 2nd boom around 2007 year.  Yet, you can see Mei Zi Qing Gu Shu all over the internet. Very up to you what you going to believe in ;-)

Quite far from any big town and located at the edge of the forest. Took us many hours by jeep to get there and road is not in the best shape. It is one of the authentic Yunnan villages with very nice and friendly people.
