Hailstones on the road

 

The pu-erh tea from Myanmar

In Yunnan, we went to a village situated at the border to Myanmar to source for pu-erh tea. We wish if we are able to introduce some teas from Myanmar. According to local Chinese who live nearby the border to Myanmar, they have close communication, and in the past till today, many trading are on-going. In fact, some Myanmar villages produce the pu-erh tea as well. Since they have no domestic demand of pu-erh tea, those teas produced in Myanmar are carried over to China and sold in Chinese pu-erh tea market.

Sudden encounter of hailstones

Hailstones shower

When we were driving at mountain road, hailstones massively fell upon us. Despite in the sub-tropical climate, the environment was immediately transformed into winter scenery. The temperature dropped drastically. The local driver said it was the first time in his life to experience the hailstones. I was a little nervous since he did not slow down his car despite the road was so slippery. Although I come from country with four seasons, this is a very rare experience.
