Famous Teas in China



Tea is extensively grown in south China where the humid climate and soil conditions are favourable. Generally, tea falls into six major categories: green tea, black tea, Oolong tea (blue tea), white tea, yellow tea, and dark tea, featuring different colors after the tea is prepared.

The above categorization is not very popular with the Chinese people. Instead, they prefer to distinguish teas by their breeds. The following table lists the top ten famous teas in China. It would be considered polite to offer tea of these breeds to guests or present them as gift.
