Its natural environment conditions of low latitude, high altitude, little sunshine, and cloudy weather endows Guizhou tea with a special, top-level quality. Guizhou green tea has become a protected geographical indication product, which means the quality and brand of Guizhou tea has earned recognition from the public.

Guizhou has over 600 species of tea plants, 150,000 of over 200-year-old tea plants, and tens of thousands of thousand-year-old tea plants, which makes it one of the provinces with the richest conservation of tea varieties in China.

By 2018, Guizhou's tea plantation area has reached 7.52 million mu (501,333 hectares) and ranked first in China. In addition, the annual output of Guizhou tea exceeded 362,000 tons.

Guizhou will keep expanding its tea industry and explore more possibilities in tea products, as the global consumption of green tea is expected to increase from 5.5 million tons to 8 million tons by 2027, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN.
