dragon well

A postcrosser in Hangzhou sent this quintessential image of nearby Dragon Well, famed for its green tea. Shown are rows and rows of tea plants. I visited Hangzhou in the late 1980's, in shincha (new tea) season, and was thrilled to be able to buy Dragon Well tea almost at the source. The postcrosser also used some pretty special stamps.
