Tea Time in the Mountains

Updated: April 22 2011(GMT+08:00)

Mengding Mountain International Tea Culture Tourism Festival continues until May 30 in Ya an, Sichuan province.

People began growing tea on the mountain more than 2,000 years ago. Since the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907), tea became a special type for the emperor to offer as a sacrifice to Heaven as well as ancestors.

Tourists can enjoy the Imperial Tea Making Ceremony that depicts how the tea was made and brewed about 1,000 years ago, and taste varieties of local tea. The South Ka Wood, a documentary that depicts the history and culture of Chinese tea, will be shot in the mountain.
