OMG: I picked tea!

Oh my goodness!  That's me, picking tea.  Abundant JOY (and hard work)!

We were looking for "two leaves and a bud".  This tea is used to make green tea.  
 We were in the HuangShane area, in the AnHui province.  Both are very important areas for Chinese tea.

Wow, what a great experience and one that most tea enthusiasts will never have. Nice photo too.

Love, love that picture of you picking tea. It does bring back memories of picking tea in Taiwan not to long ago. The plants seem low to the ground there.

After some things I've read, I'm curious to know if you were told to pick them with your thumb and forefinger. (Details when you get back, please!)
