Noodle Shorts 5

About 140km north of Guangzhou lies Yingde (英德), which is famous for its 'red tea' (紅茶). Although called 'red tea' by the Chinese, this is what we know as black tea in English i.e. the stuff found in PG Tips et al.


  1. What a lovely, lovely picture. It sums up everything I like about the Chinese countryside, and why tea is so important to me. When ever I make a pot of oolong, or jasmine green tea, the ritual of it all brings about something of the tranquility you've captured here.

  2. Hi,

  3. Gworm - considering how hectic south China is, the tea tasting at the plantation was a welcome tranquil moment!
