I recently became acquainted with a Ya’an local (Northern Sichuan province) who’s in Chengdu selling tea. I bought some of this fantastic tea and have been drinking it for a few days.

What’s great about this tea in particular is that it’s completely free of any chemicals or pesticides, due to being grown and picked outside of the industrialized tea industry. The price of this tea was 80 yuan (about $12) for half a kilo, and the small silver bags are samples of different kind of green tea grown in the same region.
