Well-placed geographically, Sichuan, where tea trees are abundantly grown in its foothills and mountains, produces a large variety of fine tea, thanks to its moderate climate, humid air, plentiful rainfall and appropriate altitude. There are four heartlands of tea production in the province: southwest Chengdu’s Chengjia Township in Pujiang County and Huaqiu Mountain in Qionglai City, southwest Sichuan’s Mount Emei in Leshan City, and west Sichuan’s Mount Mengding.
