Tea plantation
The company owns a core tea garden that occupies over 3,000 mu land. In this tea garden featuring advantageous eco-environment, the soil is both deep and fertile with a proper pH value. Local terrain is undulating. Bordering the Yiyangqiao branch, the base is enveloped by mountains on four directions, being away from national highways. No pollution source could be found here. On the other hand, the rural road network is quite developed, making local traffic quite convenient. An eco-tour tea garden that integrates tea aroma with flower fragrance, tea plantation with flower cultivation, and artificial efforts with natural magnificence is built. It’s always our goal to create a standard, demonstrating, and garden-like tea-plantation base with its own characteristics in Xianning, or even the whole country.
Core Tea Garden
The Yang Lou Dong Tea Zone in the history is centered on the present Chibi Yang Lou Dong. This zone is located at 30 degrees north latitude. The unique climate, river system, rainfall, water supply, red earth, and undulating terrain collectively nurture quality tea leaves. In addition, local temperature, humidity, climate, and light condition also constitute a perfect fermenting environment for aged green tea and Qing Zhuan Tea.
Intelligent Tea Garden
In the tea garden, an integrated system with such functions as irrigation, 5G video monitoring, smart prevention and control for pest, smart insecticidal lamp, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for spraying predatory mites has been set up.
Production and processing
Production and processing

         The tea produced in Chibi consists of three types, namely green tea, black tea, and Qing Zhuan Tea. The green tea is plucked on Grain Rain (middle April of the calendar year), black tea on Grain Buds (middle May), and Qing Zhuan Tea from the Start of Autumn to Fall Equinox (August to September). Qing Zhuan Tea usually undergoes following steps of processing: preliminary processing, pile fermentation, re-processing (screening), compression, and drying.
         Preliminary processing: fixation — rolling— drying
         Pile fermentation: small-pile fermentation of the Lao Qing Tea after preliminary processing
         Aging: when tea base shows the color of reddish tan, small piles are combined to form larger piles. Intersecting channels are formed to ventilate and dry the tea so that the tea base could undergo natural aging.
         Re-processing is to dissemble the fermented raw materials for inner tea, screen them, cut them into fine particles, and remove sands therein.
         Compression: Lao Qing Tea is first steamed at proper ratios. Inner and outer tea materials are put into molds and compressed with surface and bottom plates.
         Drying: drying is applied to downregulate the water content to be 11.5% or below,

         When being aged for over three years, Qing Zhuan Tea would enter phase 1 transformation. By then, date-like aroma could be smelled and the tea begins presenting significant sweet aftertaste. The taste is far better than that of newly harvested tea. If being preserved for another two years, the tea’s taste would be further improved. For Qing Zhuan Tea, aging should last three years at least. The raw material of Qing Zhuan Tea in Yang Lou Dong is left for fermentation for at least 3 years, thus the finish tea tastes profoundly aromatic and is a piece of artwork with high value for enjoying, collection, appreciation, and presentation.

1. Spreading out
Spread the tea leaves on clean cement surface to evaporate the water content and soften the fresh leaves.
2. Fixation
Fixation is finished at high temperature (of 280-350°) to achieve uniform and thorough smothering. But no scorching or burning is allowed in this procedure.
3. Rolling
The fixated tea leaves should be rolled with heat with intensity changing from weak to strong and weak again. After 45min rolling, 65% of tea leaves would wrinkle into lines. At this time, the rolling could be stopped and leaves could be unloaded from the machine.
4. Piling
The rolled tea leaves should be left in fermentation at night or in rainy days and spread out in time during daytime. In rainy days, tea leaves should be dried by 50-60 percents with a dryer and then left dried in the sun.
5. Drying in the sun
The rolled tea leaves should be dried in the sun until the water content reaches 15% or so.
6. Pile fermentation
The Lao Qing tea after preliminary processing is left for fermentation in small piles.
7. Aging
After fermentation in small piles is finished, the tea leaves would appear liver-colored. Then, small piles could be combined to form larger piles in which intersecting channels could be dug to facilitate ventilation, drying, and natural aging. The natural aging should last 6 months to 3 years or above.
8. Compression
Raw materials are then put into molds to be compressed and shaped under high pressure.
9. Baking (drying)
The temperature rise process adopted in this procedure should not be too sharp.
10. Inspection
Before being sealed, packed, and stored for sales, the tea should pass an inspection with tea-making trial.
