The Pinyin in this map is not exactly standard.
All of the famous oolong producing areas are in a fairly compact area, as Fujian province (and Chaozhou, which is on the border between Fujian and Guangdong provinces) is right across the straight from Taiwan.
This is especially interesting, since he's speculating that the North and South parts of Taiwan roughly tend to prefer the varietals which are common in the corresponding areas across the strait.

While it doesn't drill down into the more specific areas, maybe helps provide a little bit of context.

I did find a Green Tea Map of China, but it was a lot of searching and not a lot of finding. Bet there's a ton of info available if we could just read chinese....
