As the center for growing Huangshan Maofeng – one of the most pricey and sought-after green teas in China – Fuxi town in the Huizhou district of Huangshan city, in Anhui province, welcomed in its tea picking season on March 25.

Pickers carefully plucked the first tea sprouts on the day in accordance with the "one bud and one leaf" standard. The fresh leaves in their tea basket were quickly snapped up at about 600 yuan ($87.18) per kilogram.

Huangshan Maofeng is among China's top 10 teas and the art of making it was added on Nov 29 to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, compiled by UNESCO.
