The Wider Image: Climate-fuelled drought forces Taiwan tea farmer in search of water
Chien Shun-yih, 28, smells tea leaves to determine whether they're ready in Jiayi, Taiwan, September 6, 2021. Chien estimates he will only harvest 600 kg of tea this year, half of last year, due to the drought and rains, but says he is determined not to be beaten. "These trees are what fed me and brought me up. In return I want to try my best to take good care of them too." REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "TAIWAN TEA" FOR THIS STORY.
