Here is a collection of photos of some of the tea growing areas around the world, starting with the original source, China.

All the tea in China

The history of tea begins in what is now China.

China is famous for the rare Dragonwell,

Chun Mee or Precious Eyebrows,

Gunpowder green,

Mao Feng,

Pi Lo Chun or Green Snail Spring,

Lu Shan Yun Wu, a longevity tea, and

Lu'an Melon Seed, among countless others.

Turkish green tea

In Turkey, people usually drink green teas with mint to help keep their bodies cool in the hot climate. It is frequently called Moroccan Mint.

The plants can be positioned near trees with spring blossoms for delicate scenting and shading. Plum trees and peach trees are commonly used for this purpose. Here is a tea growing area mixed with almond trees on the coast of Anatolia in Turkey.

Growing tea in Africa

Africa has many tea agriculture areas and processes the leaves into strongly flavored, spicy black varieties. Political instability has interfered with production. Here's a photo of growing areas near Mount Kenya.

Sri Lanka or Ceylon teas

Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, offers different growing regions from high elevations to sea level plantations. Most of their leaves are made into black varieties that brew into a characteristic bright coppery color and fresh taste. High grown Sri Lanka teas are usually sold as premium estate selections and now include white and green varieties. Famous estates include Nuwara Eliya and Kenilworth.
