The fragrance of tea in Fuliang has been more than a thousand years, and a dream comes from the ink yao, visiting the source of tea, the porcelain capital of Jingdezhen


The floating beams surrounded by greenery are immortal Throughout the ages, there has been an endless stream of people who have visited Fuliang City. The words of praise are hidden in popular poems Jingdezhen has always been known as the “Porcelain Capital”, and Fuliang County, located at the junction of Jiangxi and Anhui provinces in the northeast of Jiangxi Province, is the largest district in Jingdezhen. It is not only the famous “source of porcelain”, but also The little-known “Fuliang Tea City”. The famous verse that made Fuliang tea master famous in our childhood textbooks, Bai Juyi’s “Pipa Xing”, “Businessmen value profit rather than parting, and Fuliang went to buy tea the previous month.” A short sentence to buy tea in Fuliang shows the status of Fuliang tea at that time. Today, it is the first time for me to come to Jingdezhen. I am not looking for the blue and white porcelain, but only to explore the pleasant fragrance of Fuliang tea. Drive about an hour from Fuliang County to the “Shizi Garden”. After the new rain, a green tea field spread out in front of my eyes. The tea fields of Shiziyuan occupy the right time and place of the Fuliang Mountain; the vegetation there is vast, warm and humid, the soil layer is deep, the rainfall is abundant, cloudy and foggy; “Sundays and evenings on a sunny day, fog everywhere, cloudy and rainy, full of clouds” is Shiziyuan’s. Beauty and portrayal. In the early summer of May, Shi Ziyuan exudes a faint fragrance of spring tea. When the drone soared freely in the sky, I saw the beauty away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and also felt the romantic poem brought by Fuliang Chunming: “Tea ridges lie outside the sky, and peaks and mountains pass between the sea and clouds.” If you want to understand the past and present of Fuliang, one place you must visit is “Yaoli Ancient Town”. The ancient name of Yaoli is “Yaoli”, as far back as the middle of the Tang Dynasty, where there were handicraft workshops producing ceramics, named after the famous porcelain kiln. It wasn’t until the beginning of this century that the porcelain kiln moved out, and “Yaoli” was renamed Yaoli. Ming and Qing Ancient Street Water Pavilion Tower Bluestone Road Wooden Suspension Bridge Naughty child Green hills, green water, white wall and black tiles Also far away and live Also beautiful and also through Choose a cool breeze in the afternoon, walk slowly in the Huizhou-style building with white walls and blue tiles, slowly appreciate and taste the lush greenery of the years and the passage of time. In Yaoli Ancient Town, you can see the villagers take their dried bamboo shoots to dry in the sun, and you can also see the old people sitting in twos and threes on the bamboo chairs to bask in the sun. The dense life scenes make people want to stay. The new tea picked by the villagers in the ancient town is also favored by tourists. Red pepper, dried potato, dried small fish, and fermented bean curd can be used as your meal, or you can take it home as authentic local souvenirs. “Mother River” Yao River, clear and soothing, gurgling across the town from east to west, bringing poetry-like pastoral scenery to the small ancient town. Because of the agility of the Yao River, the town is more peaceful, and tourists also like to walk on the small wooden bridge over the river, staggeringly stepping on the beat to explore the past of the ancient town. Sitting on the wooden bridge, taking a stretched photo, the green hills are majestic, the trees are verdant, and a colorful ink painting is spread out like this. The ancient buildings in Yaoli are mostly old houses from the Ming and Qing dynasties, scattered on both sides of the Yao River. The old-fashioned bricks and tiles, mottled walls, classical windows, and angled eaves all tell history. I like this ancient town of Yaoli. There are no fully commercialized Xiaoqiaoliu Shui people’s homes. The villagers in the ancient town still retain their houses and previous lifestyles. For them, it seems that time has stagnated, as if everything is the same as before. . Also belonging to the Yaoli Scenic Area, there is also a “Rainan Ancient Kiln Civilization Site”. Around the south, a very inconspicuous mountain village once led Jingdezhen ceramics to another brilliance. As far back as the middle of the Tang Dynasty, Yaoli had handcrafted workshops for the production of ceramics, especially glazed fruit. During the heyday of porcelain making, there were more than 100 porcelain kilns, more than 200 ceramic workshops, and more than 300 water tanks. During the Song, Yuan and Ming Dynasties, the Yaoli porcelain industry was pushed to its peak and became one of the three ancient kiln areas in Jingdezhen. Now go to the ancient civilization site of the ancient kiln in Raonan, you can see the oldest glazed fruit hand workshop, ceramic hand workshop, and now there are workers in it to restore the scene of the year. Along a serene path with a winding path, there is the No. 1 Long Kiln site. This is a sloped dragon kiln built in the Southern Song Dynasty. It is built on the mountain and has a total length of 19.2 meters. It is divided into three parts: a fire chamber, a kiln bed and a smoke outlet. It is paved with crushed stones and is well preserved. Visitors to and from the kiln must always observe carefully and look up at this large kiln with a slope. Flying the drone, overlooking the long No. 1 Dragon Kiln from a high altitude, it is like a gray “grey dragon” embedded in the green water and green mountains, winding and talking. In the distance, there is the No. 2 Long Kiln site. It is one of the oldest porcelain kilns discovered in Yaoli. The No. 3 Long Kiln site is the oldest and most well-preserved dragon kiln discovered to date. Why did the small Raonanshan Village become the exclusive land of dragon kilns for several generations in the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties? The answer is the same as Fuliang tea. There are abundant china clay resources, sufficient water resources, and sufficient fuel resources, which are all indispensable natural conditions for making porcelain. Leaving the ancient kiln civilization ruins in Raonan, the car traveled between the green hills of Fuliang in northern Jiangxi. What you breathe is the taste of negative oxygen ions. The source of high-grade Fuliang black tea is hidden in these green primitive wild tea forests; Wanghu Ancient Tea Garden is also in this forest and mountains. After the Fuliang black tea is brewed, the tea soup is red and strong, the aroma is fresh, the fragrance is long-lasting, and there is an obvious sweet fragrance, sometimes with the fragrance of roses. The unique fragrance of floating red is also called “Qimenxiang”. Gongfu black tea produced in Fuliang County won the gold medal of the “Panama World Expo”. Since then, Fuliang Gongfu black tea, together with Sri Lanka’s highland tea and India’s Darjeeling tea, has been included in the world’s top three high-flavor teas. Fuliang County has many mountains above 500 meters above sea level. The red soil and yellow soil in the area have high organic content, rich water, heat, and biological resources. The mountain forests grow luxuriantly, the forest coverage rate is high, and tea gardens are scattered on the slopes and hills. The unique natural conditions not only make Fuliang black tea famous overseas, but also the “Fuyao Xianzhi” and “Yaoli Yayu” Fuliang green tea, which is also a high-quality high-quality mountain tea. When I left Fuliang County, I brought a few boxes of Fuliang tea back to Shanghai, hoping to keep the fragrance of Fuliang tea lingering on my lips and in my heart.
