Chinese tea-producing regions
China currently produces around 3,100,000 tonnes a year (2021 statistics), in 18 different provinces (Zhe Jiang, Fujian, Anhui, Guizhou, etc), mainly green tea (around 73% of production). Chinese clearly used to favour green tea. With the development of tea houses over the last thirty years and the growing interest of the middle classes, other teas such as black (red) teas, white teas and oolong teas are becoming more widespread.
Our black and oolong tea plantations are located in the heart of the Wuyi mountains in China's Fujian province, the only place in the world where the Da Hong Pao and Lapsang Souchong tea plants grow.
These two teas have become famous worldwide and are considered the finest teas in the world.
