Taidi Cha vs. Gushu Cha  
The leave source is an important factor to determine the quality of a Pu-erh tea. If you compare a Taidi Cha (Pu-erh made from the plantation bushes)with a Gushu Cha (Pu-erh made from the old growth trees), the difference is obvious. To allow Pu-erh lovers who have never been to Yunnan to understand the different cultivation methods of these trees, I made a video of the different types of tea gardens. To view, click to http://banateacompany.com/pages/puerh_videos.html

Rcently, the government of some areas are pushing to convert all the Taidi plantation into eco-tea gardens, meaning making the bushes less dense and planting other trees in between the tea bushes. Most importantly, to stop using fertilizers and pesticides. Time will tell how successful this movement will be.

Just want to say, that was one of the best factual videos on puerh I have seen. Thank you so much.

Re: Thanks
Thank you. It is my hope that through instructional videos and information, the Pu-erh lovers in the West will be enpowered and become discernable Pu-erh consumers.
