Guangdong's Yingde is renowned as the birthplace of Cantonese black tea. Nestled in the mountainous region of northern Guangdong, Yingde benefits from its year-round warmth and rainfall, creating fertile and slightly acidic land which is ideal for cultivating tea plants.
The black tea produced in Yingde has earned a stellar reputation in China, praised for its exquisite appearance, deep black and red hues, vibrant red soup color, and mellow aroma.
As of the end of 2022, the tea gardens in Yingde covered an expansive area of 116.7 square kilometers, yielding an annual output of 14,000 tons of dry tea. The tea industry's comprehensive output value amounted to 6 billion yuan. Currently, the city is home to 550 tea enterprises, providing employment opportunities for approximately 150,000 individuals.
