I see that Jim has put up three new videos of his visit to China.

Boy, seeing where this stuff comes from makes me wonder why I ever thought about fertilizers and pollution. They are out in the mountains among wild plants.

You might want to watch them in reverse order. I liked Tea Mountains the most and Going Malingdao the least.

Very cool. Its funny I had no idea that Kunming was such a large, contemporary city. I imagined it would look like what Yiwu village looks like.

Really cool! I liked all of them.

Of course the tea-specific ones held a particular interest, but overall I enjoyed seeing what it's like in everyday China as seen by a guy I buy tea from.

gigantic leaves

Postby Jim Liu » Oct 30th, '08, 08:13

The gigantic leaves are from the wild banana tree that grows tiny bananas, you might have seen the bananas on sale at the end of 'Kunming to Banna' movie.

BTW, these tiny bananas taste astringent and bitter, sort like raw tea leaves. So who says the wild stuff is surely better?
