Lovely tea gardens for a spring outing
Source: SilkRoadPost

Guangdong is a major producer and consumer of tea in China. The province sells close to 250,000 tons of tea leaves annually, accounting for about one-tenth of the national volume. A number of tea gardens are scattered throughout the province to meet the great demand for the leaves.

When a cup of tea is served, one can imagine the beautiful, green terraced fields in tea gardens amid early-morning mist. To get the premium quality, the best harvest time of tea leaves is typically in April.

If you are a tea lover, why not take a tea garden tour in Guangdong this season to learn the production life of tea leaves from the field to the cup. Apart from enjoying walks through vast rolling hills covered with seas of green, visitors can participate in tea leaf harvests and the tea-making process during their journey. At the end, they can enjoy the tea they made and learn the art of tea appreciation, of appearance, aroma, and taste.

We has collected some of the tea gardens in the province for your excursion.
