In China, there are 18 provinces producing tea. Who knows where is the earliest plucking place among these provinces. Hainan? Yunnan? Guangdong? Fujian?… Because these provinces are in the more southern part of China.
NO. These are wrong. The earliest one should be SICHUAN! It is not easy to answer this question why here is the earliest. Sichuan is a province which is neither North nor South, and not a border province. But here generally the plucking of tea starts right now in Chinese New Year, around one month earlier than other places.
Maybe Sichuan is in a basin wit has active geological activity, though the air temperature in not high, the soil temperature is high enough to make the tea germinate early. Maybe so…
