    1. Hi Ben,

      To the best of my knowledge, no. He (魯雲 Lu Yun) is a tea writer, and the source of the article is an industry news site (說茶網). The author is not saying that gushu is bad in this article; rather, that it is dangerous to buy based on origin and tree age (or size) alone. Base material is an important factor in how a tea will taste, but he worries that people undervalue the importance of good processing as an important factor in a tea’s result. His preferences appear to track away from new tea/single-origin focus and toward affordable mid-aged teas (neither specifies boutiques nor factories), per this article:

      Do note that the Google translation of that article loses a lot of nuance, so I’d be cautious drawing strong conclusions solely from that.
