Zhejiang is China’s second smallest province and one of the most densely populated. Hangzhou is the largest city and serves as the provincial capital. Zhejiang is largely covered by mountains, which means that only a fifth can be used for cultivation. The climate is subtropical governed largely by the monsoon winds.

World War II caused great damage to the tea industry in Zhejiang where many plantations were abandoned. During the 1950s restored the tea industry systematically using official development programs. Cultivation and production methods improved, new areas were planted and Zhejiang is now China’s leading tea producer.
