"One Belt, One Road" is a rare opportunity to turn Chinese tea consumption into a global phenomenon.

"The Belt and Road Initiative is not just a rejuvenation of the ancient silk road, but also a comeback of the ancient tea road."

China's tea industry will embrace an unprecedented window of opportunity.

Tea is an important part of Chinese tradition, first used medicinally but now a favorite drink for many in the country and beyond.

The nation cultivated tea 6,000 years ago.The findings were made by a Chinese research team investigating Tianluo Mountain

in the city of Yuyao in East China where they discovered the country's earliest remains of tea brewing.

For generations, growers and producers have perfected the Chinese way of manufacturing tea, and its many unique regional

variations, writing the long and gradual story of refinement.

Tea production of countries and regions along "One Belt, One Road" has taken up more than 80 percent of the global volume.

The Belt and Road Initiative refers to the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road proposed in 2013.

The China-proposed trade and infrastructure network has so far passes through more than 60 countries and regions.
