Provenance: Mr Xu, Xingjian cooperative. Menglian, Yunnan

Xingjian (Literal translation Xing – walk; Jian – healthy) cooperative is built from co-operation between local ethnic groups [Wa, Lahu, Hani].  The land on which the tea is grown is either rented from local farmers, rented by the cooperative group or purchased by the group from the local government.  The management of the tea farms is then handed to local farmers who receive accommodation  basic equipment and a fair price for their leaves [based on the quality of the picked tea].  The organic section of the garden delivers significantly lower annual yields than the conventional areas - Mr Xu supports organic tea farmers with extra allowances to ensure organic practices are maintained.
