Anxi Tea Garden & Hong’en Rock One-Day Tour

From ¥470

Anxi is a small and mountainous county in southeastern Fujian Province. The county has a tea farming history dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618 to 907). Anxi currently produces 15,000 tons of oolong tea annually with its 16,700 acres of tea gardens. The word you will hear most often in Anxi is probably Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess tea), the name of a premium variety of Oolong tea. Anxi is hailed as the birthplace of this special tea. Most of the population of the county is involved in some aspect of tea cultivation.
