Alisan High Mountain Tea Picker #2

Alisan has a rugged softness about it. The mountains are massive, but beautiful terraced tea farms cover them; often you are engulfed in white fluffy clouds. Scattered on the slopes, in between the rows, are the Tea pickers in their bright clothing and classic wide brimmed hats. It is stunning. These women work hard. I nearly went down while photographing them. Its incredibly steep covered in lose rocks and they are wrapped in multiple layers of protective clothing and picking constantly. Here is a link to a very cool blog Tea masters and a link to the Alisan web site.
