English Name: Guafengzhai Puer Tea Plantation of Yiwu Mountain, XishuangBanna
Want to travel in the fragrance of tea? Yiwu,the hometown of Puer Tea, which has “seven villages and eight Zhaizi”, along the line there are Huangtian(荒田), Manxiu(曼秀), Sanqiutian(三丘田), Luoshuidong(落水洞) , Mahei(麻黑), Daqishu(大漆树) and other villages. Guafengzhai Village (刮风寨) is a village inhabited by Yao ethnic group. It is 32 kilometers away from Yiwu Township (易武乡) Government and only 2 kilometers away from Laos(老挝) border. In seven villages of Yiwu, the tea mountain of Guafengzhai Village has the highest altitude, about 1700 meters, which is the village with the most intact old tea trees. Almost all the old tea trees growing here are hundreds of years old, and the tall ones are 5 or 6 meters high.
The ancient tea trees in the Guafengzhai Village grow quietly on the border between China and Laos. The primeval forest of 50 square kilometers is the best protection forest for ancient tea trees. Close to the border with Laos, Chapingdi(茶坪地) is largely uninhabited and a forgotten gathering place of ancient tea trees. Only in recent years have people discovered the ancient tea trees here. Like its famous name, the reputation of the Guafengzhai Village began to blow a whirlwind in the minds of the people.
If you want to feel the charms of Puer tea culture, the Guafengzhai Village is a good place to go.
