Jing Mai: the ideal place for pu-erh tea lover

From my experience, I found that most of pu-erh tea lover wish to visit Yunnan province and have a look at the ancient tea trees. In most cases, you would just conclude that it seems rather impossible, unless you are following the local tour guide or joining a special tea tour. For most of the places, yes, it is not easy to access if without the local tour guide. However, there is an exceptional place. This place is called Jing Mai. It has vast area of tea garden. It is named as ancient tea garden since it has a large number of old tea trees. If you love tea, you will not get bored even if staying there for a whole day. There is a village formed by Dai races near by the ancient tea garden. Going there during the tea harvesting season, you may also see the way of plucking tea carried out by the local minority ethnics. If you are lucky, they may allow you to pluck the fresh tea leaves and learn the way of making tea.
As far as I know, Jing Mai is the best place, whether tourists or professional tea merchants can enjoy a pleasant tea tour.

Jing Mai is just a few hours away from the nearest airport

Several years ago, because of the road condition, the access to Jing Mai was very tough. However, the road condition was drastically improved recently. For now, Jing Mai is one of the nearest tea gardens from the airport. In Jing Mai, hotel is not that common yet. You may need to stay at Meng Hai and then take a taxi to Jing Mai.

The following video shows the tea garden in Jing Mai.
