Renowned as one of the hometowns of China's black tea, Yingde enjoys a long history of tea planting. Suitable climate, water source and soil provide a favorable environment for the growth of tea trees, allowing Yingde to produce high-quality and high-yield black tea.

By the end of 2022, the planting area of Yingde black tea has reached about 11,667 hectares, with the production up to 14,000 tons and the comprehensive output value exceeding 6 billion RMB.
