||After buying Keemuns in China, we made a quick trip to Terra Incognita: Jiangxi Province, China. As we rolled up the mountain and into a small village, we were told that we were the first western tea buyers to visit this tiny village (Yangjiaping) that is devoted to tea. They certainly did treat us like royalty. We walked up to the top of the mountain, and our friends told us to look down into the valley. They said the view was of the region around Keemun. So we thought that there was some hope for good teas. On the way down, they pointed out some wild tea bushes. After a nice meal, we tasted them and bought all of the crop that was still available. We loved its sweet and toasty flavors. Please do give them a try.
