Comments - Charming design of three women picking tea leaves under a shelter made from reed blinds. The woman at right sits on a bench with a basket tucked under her arm, her long hair pulled back into a low knot over her back. The woman at left is partially hidden behind the leaves of a bush as she leans over. Beautiful soft color and fine line work in this scene from daily life.
