Xitou village – the source of Qi tea
In the County of Wuyuan (in which Xitou is located) people are incredibly passionate about tea!
The art of growing, blending and processing is cultivated and has been taught for over 1000 years in this region. For people wanting to work in the tea industry, the town boasts it’s very own ‘tea university’ where people undertake 3 year courses.
