About Guangdong, China

Guangdong (广东省) is a province on the southern coast of China and is the most economically prosperous and most populated province. Guangdong is slightly less well-known than a number of other provinces in terms of tea production, but it does produce tea, and is also the origin of a number of important varieties of tea.

Guangdong is home to the phoenix mountains, or feng huang shan(凤凰山), best known for being the origin of feng huang dancong oolongs, a diverse style of single-trunk oolongs. This is the third most important region in China in terms of oolong production, after the Wuyi mountains and Anxi county in Fujian province.

The climate in Guangdong is very humid year-round and ranges from subtropical at higher elevations to almost tropical near the ocean; the climate is moderated by the proximity to the ocean and the high humidity. Precipitation is seasonal, following the pattern of the Asian monsoon, with heavy rainfall in the summer and considerably less, but still relatively consistent rainfall in the cooler winter months.
