Young men and women from the She ethnic minority dressed in traditional costumes sang their folk songs in contest while picking tea leaves in tea plants in Panxi Town, which appealed to journalists, tourists and photograph lovers who were awed by the beautiful scene and posted pictures online instantly. Once a tribute to emperors, the Fuding white tea is now popular for its health benefits and attended the Milan 2015 Expo and was awarded a gold prize for famous Chinese tea.

The name “white tea” comes from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant, which gives the plant a whitish appearance.
