Mt. Qomolangma Green Tea made on the Yigong Tea Plantation not only enjoys good markets in Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing and other inland cities but also is exported to Japan.
With an elevation of 2,240 meters, the Yigong Tea Plantation is the highest tea plantation in China. Enjoying nature-endowed geography, the tea plant in the Yigong Tea Plantation is irrigated by snow water and fertilized by farmhouse manure instead of chemical fertilizers, which makes the tea more fragrant.
The tea of the Yigong Plantation can help people get rid of fatigue, relieve internal heat, reduce the blood pressure, protect against radiation, etc.
Since 1985, Mt. Qomolangma Green Tea has won quite a few prizes at many trade fairs, gaining popularity among Tibetan people, inland people and even foreigners. (Resource from China Tibet Online)
