There is a high-altitude tea garden near Wanda Danzhai in Guizhou. This Danzhai Poverty Alleviation Tea Garden is a poverty alleviation project developed by Wanda Town. There are no tourists here, so it is worthy of being called not deeply involved. The scenic spot, the next morning, is a half-hour drive from Danzhai Wanda Town to the Danzhai Poverty Tea Garden. The unique fragrance of the tea tree flies down the wind. This fragrance has fresh grass. It has the fragrance of the tea tree itself, and it is also mixed with the soil of a little soil. Smell this smell, can't help but breathe hard, let the negative oxygen ions enter the body.
In this tea garden, everything is the product of the most primitive nature, fertile and nutritious land, high-quality climate, the most rustic tea farmers, everything is just right. Therefore, behind the phrase "good mountains and good tea" is the hard result of all the land of Danzhai tea farmers and Danzhai. If it is not because I know that this is the Danzhai Poverty Alleviation Tea Garden, there will be an illusion that I will be in the terraces of Yunnan in an instant, because it is like a terrace, a crystallization of human wisdom and a great product of nature.
When walking in the trail of Chashan, turning around and looking back at the road that I walked through, I will unconsciously find that I have actually walked hundreds of meters, watching the surrounding tea hills, and the mountains and plains are all yellow and green. Every piece of farmland is planted with dozens of tea trees. The ridges and the ridges turn the original mountain into a very orderly tea mountain. If time is enough, you must stay here for a few hours.

If you happen to meet a long table banquet, then the Danzhai town will change another look. The long alley has a red table that cant be seen at the end. As the crowd grows, the town gradually becomes more and more lively. When I got up, I could see the scene on the street from the window of the room. I reached out and tried the quiet morning outside and put on a thick coat and went out.
An unprecedented banquet for tens of thousands of people, a long table banquet of more than 3,000 meters runs through the whole street, and tens of thousands of people participate. Everyone gathers together to enjoy the delicious snacks of Danzhai and share the festival of Chongyang. Of course, it has set a new world record. Before the start of the long table banquet, the Miao people's villagers sacrificed their ancestors with rice wine, glutinous rice, fish and other sacrifices to celebrate the harvest and pray for the coming year. There are many foods on the
long table feast, such as ancient Tibetan meat, glutinous rice, leeks and roots, but everyone not only eats well, but also has a good time. During the toasting period, the Miaos unique hospitality customs mountain flowing water set off a wave of climax. Six or seven Miao girls sang the Miao toast songs and slanted the wine bowls to the tourists' mouths. A pot of rice wine was dumped from the top to the tourists' mouths until the tourists finished the whole pot of rice wine. until. Some tourists said that the first time I saw such a way of drinking, it was very special. After experiencing the "high mountain water", I felt that I was getting drunk.
