A few years ago I saw an amazing documentary about puer tea production in Yiwu, Yunnan. It was a research project by the anthropologist Jinghong Zhang, a Yunnan University lecturer . The documentary is composed by several parts but the one I found most interesting was the one featuring a tea producer named Mr. Zheng. This wasn’t a promotional video. Mr. Zheng wasn’t trying to sell his tea. It was instead a research project into the puer world where he shared his knowledge with the author. I was so impressed that I tried to find his teas for a long time without success. Eventually, I managed to reach Mr. Zheng and decided to open Tea Encounter website where I can now share his teas with others. In case you haven’t had the chance to see the documentary and you are a puer tea drinker, I would strongly recommend you to.
