Venture out of the bustling city of Xiamen and discover the lush Anxi region in the Fujian Province. Explore the mountainous region that has been cultivating Oolong tea since the Tang Dynasty and produces over 15,000 tons each year. Then enjoy a delicious lunch at a local farm complete with tea tasting and admire the scenery from the Anxi Hong’en Rock before heading back to the city.
When in Fujian Province, especially the city of Xiamen, we recommend visiting famous but small Anxi County known for its world class tea, especially the Tieguanyin type.
Tea is enjoyed in China during all occasions: to wake up in the morning, to accompany all meals, to celebrate special moments, and of course to quench thirst. It’s no wonder, then that an activity you can’t miss is not a winery tour or a brewery tour, but a tea tour.
Anxi County’s fame stretches throughout China as well as around the world, and it is now known as the Tea Capital of China and one of China Highlight’s Top Tea Cities.
