Full description
Meet your local expert guide at your Xiamen downtown hotel at 8:30 AM, and board comfortable private vehicle to start the trip. Located in the southeastern Fujian Province, Anxi is a small and mountainous county with a tea farming history dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618 to 907). Today this county produces 15,000 tons of oolong tea annually with its 16,700 acres of tea gardens. The name you hear most often is probably Tieguanyin (Iron Goddess tea), 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. On the way, you will have a short visit of Anxi Hong'en Rock to view the beautify scenery. Upon arrival, enjoy an organic lunch at local farm. Visit the Anxi Tea Garden. Siting at 800 meters above sea level, this is one of the most famous tea farms in Anxi. Here you will learn about tea culture while watching the production process of Tieguanyin. Participate in the tea picking and production process if it is the correct time in the season and taste some examples of the fine teas from the region. Afterwards your local guide will take you back to Xiamen and drop you off at your hotel to conclude the trip.
