Tea-picking Season Arrives at World's Highest Plantation


This year’s spring picking season arrives on May 1 at Yi-ong Tea Plantation in Bome, world’s highest tea plantation.

Extending over thousands of mu (1 mu=0.0667 hectares) with an altitude of 1,900-2,300 meters, it is the only tea plantation in Tibet. Thanks to humid climate and warm temperature, Yi-ong boasts a planting history of over 70 years and for more than 40 years, it caters Tibetans with quality green tea and brick tea (a tea variety specializing in alleviating symptoms from high latitude and anoxic atmosphere) which it is best-known for.
