Guangzhou Tea Market

Guangzhou Fangcun Tea Market is located in the southwestern part of Guangzhou, and you will find an exhibition of all varieties of tea from the whole country (including Taiwan), packaging materials, machinery for tea, and tea sets and utilities of various styles.
It is estimated that more than 3000 stores are situated on Fangcun Dadao and at the Fangcun Tea Market, most of which are operated by businessmen from provinces like Zhejiang, Fujian, Yunnan, Hunan, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, as well as Hong Kong and Taiwan.
The number of tea shops at Fangcun is simply staggering. Even a whole day wouldn’t take in all of the establishments-but this is not the point. The real point is to make it a leisurely pursuit, sampling and savouring. Most of the shops also sell other tea-related accoutrements, such as cups, boilers and wonderful, hand-crafted tea trays.
As yet, no foreign tea companies are operating in Fang Cun market, with the exception of Lipton which has its own tea blending plant in Guangzhou. The huge market in mainland China remains uncharted waters to foreign tea business. This may have some relation to the tax policy of the Chinese government in protecting local tea farmers.
