Phong Saly Province is the northern most province of Laos, bordering on China on the north and west and Vietnam on the east. The China border is with Yunnan Province, ancestral home of Puer Tea. Puer Tea grows well in Phong Saly since the climate and soils are similar to Yunnan Province.
All Puer tea grown in Phong Saly is organic and natural. Mountain scene here is at Boonneua District Phong Saly, top is about 1400 meters or 4200 feet above sea level, altitude. Photo taken in February 2011 by Mike Carroll.
