About Anhui, China

A steep rocky mountain with fog and pine treesHuangshan, or Yellow mountain, is located in Anhui province.
Anhui (安徽) is a province of China that is a major agricultural region and is important in tea production. It is located in the eastern portion of China, inland, and has a diverse geography, including both flat and mountainous regions. Anhui is located near other important tea producing regions, and is bordered by Jiangsu to the northeast, Zhejiang to the southeast, Jiangxi to the south, and Hubei to the southwest.

The climate in Anhui is slightly harsher and more variable than in coastal provinces, although much milder than western China. The northernmost part of Anhui and the higher-altitude regions are unsuitable for growing the tea plant. Most of the tea in Anhui is produced in the southern region; even in this area, the climate is cold enough that the tree line is around 5,900ft (1,800m), and the highest suitable altitude for growing tea is much lower.

Anhui is the origin of a number of varieties of tea, including Keemun black tea (originating in and named for Anhui's Qimen county), lu an gua pian / lu an melon seed green tea, Huangshan mao feng, Tai Ping Hou Kui, and hyson green tea, which includes chun mee and young hyson. Anhui also produces a number of styles of tea that originated in other provinces, as well as various herbs that are used for herbal tea or blending with tea.
