September 22,2017   By:CRI Online
Anxi County, located in Quanzhou, Fujian Province, is home to Tie Guanyin, the best variety of oolong tea. Both the tree and tea share the name of Tie Guanyin. Due to its strict requirement for the environment, the tree is extremely hard to grow. It needs 18 procedures to make Tie Guanyin and many of them have to rely on the experience of tea makers.

Wei Yuede, an inheritor of national intangible heritage, said since the weather in Anxi is quite variable, it is necessary for a tea maker to know the soil, air and moisture of different places of Anxi. A good drink of tea must be made with your heart and mind. One is never too old to learn. It is said that a tea maker can truly appreciate the real flavor of tea after turning thirty.

        不过而立不懂茶-中国茶文化
 
        安溪县位于福建省泉州市,是乌龙茶中的极品——铁观音的发源地。铁观音既是树种名,亦是茶名。铁观音树难种,难在其对环境要求苛刻;铁观音茶的制作工序也多达18道,其中很多工序完全要依靠制茶师的经验来完成。
 
        国家非物质文化遗产制作技艺代表性传承人、安溪铁观音魏荫第九代传人魏月德说:安溪十里不同天,(制茶)要知道安溪各个地方的土质、土壤、空气、水分。做一泡好茶是悟出来的,用心感悟,茶无止境。学到老做到老,做到老学到老。三十岁以前,他不懂茶。
