Anhui, China

One of China's main black tea producing regions, is central to the history of tea. It is the birthplace of a variety of teas, most notably Keemun, which is named for Qimen county in Anhui. Tea has been grown in this province for thousands of years, producing many tribute teas that will never make it to export as the demand for them in China is so great.

All six styles of tea are cultivated here, adding to the importance of the area. In 1990 Anhui was deemed a World Heritage site by UNESCO, affording the tea plants a certain level of preservation and protection.

The geography in Anhui can be rather harsh and varied compared to other parts of China. This is why much of the tea grown in this area is done so in the southernmost region where the climate and soil are ideal for its cultivation.
