History of black tea in Changsha and Anhua

Updated: Nov 20, 2023

At the invitation of Mr. Pang Yanliang, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Shanghai Difute International Tea Market, Mr. Shen Zhijun, Chairman of Australia Tea Association, accompanied by Ms. Liu Lihua, director of Yiqingyuan Tea Company, went to Changsha and Anhua, Hunan Province from November 13 to 16 to study black tea, one of the six tea systems.

Black tea is one of the main systems of the six major tea systems in China. Black tea mainly contains tea polyphenols, caffeine, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins, especially vitamins B1, B2, C and E in tea can promote body metabolism and enhance immunity, which clearly explains why Mongolia, the main market of black tea, have a diet rich in meat due to harsh growing conditions. Although their diet lack vegetables and fruits but consuming black tea helps them to maintain a healthy balance in the human body. In particular, the weight loss program set by Professor Liu Zhonghua, a tea academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, to drink black tea to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol is very suitable for Australia's consumption habits of meat as the staple food.

We hope that through investigation, we can find a set of tea suitable for Australians to drink.After three days of investigation, it is found that black tea is very suitable for Australians to introduce, promote and drink, and can be used as a national drink.
