Wuping tea shines at HK Intl Tea Exhibition

2014-08-29

Wuping's Liangye roasted green tea won second prize in the tea category of the sixth Hong Kong International Tea Exhibition, which was co-sponsored by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and China Tea Culture Association for International Exchange.

Wuping, located in the southwest of Longyan, Fujian province, is famous for its roasted green tea . The total tea plantations covers an area of 58,000 mu (about 38.7 million square meters).

By combining the tea industry with attractive local customs, long cultural history and beautiful natural scenery, Wuping has well boosted the development of its tourism and tea industries and has built a new pattern of mutually beneficial cooperation between culture and tourism.

Ecological tourism has also been promoted thanks to Wuping's efforts to integrate the tea industry with ecological tourism, including the construction of a tea ecological sightseeing park, tea garden and tea culture village and various activities like a Tea-picking Festival, Tea Expo and Tea Product Fair.
