Xiuning(Xiūníng or 休宁) is a county in Anhui, China. It is bordered to the west by Qimen, the origin of Keemun black tea.

The eastern part of the county surrounds Tunxi district, the central urban part of Huangshan city. Most of the county, epecially as one gets farther from Tunxi, is forested and mountainous, with steep topography, although not as pronounced as in the Huangshan district.

Considerable amounts of tea are grown in Xiuning, and these teas are fairly widely available in the West, although not always openly advertised as such. Although the region is not as well-known as Qimen county, Xiuning also grows tea in the style of Keemun. The region also produces Song Luo green tea, named for Song Luo mountain, and Lu An melon seed, which originated elsewhere in Anhui province.
