To pick Shan tuyet tea buds, local people have to climb up the old and tall trees and pick fresh tea buds, one by one, and store them in a basket on their backs. When trees produce the 'one-bud-two-leaves' tea, it's the right time to harvest tea buds, which should be dried immediately on the same day to ensure the best quality.
