Where is 30 degrees north latitude?

30 degrees north latitude mainly refers to the range covered by the five degrees of fluctuations up and down at 30 degrees north latitude. This is a mysterious and peculiar line of latitude, which runs through the four ancient civilizations, and there are many puzzling mysterious phenomena and civilization information. Ancient human civilization developed on this golden line. The Nile River in Egypt, the Euphrates River in Iraq, the Yangtze River in China, and the Mississippi River in the United States all entered the sea at this latitude.

At the same time, it is also the golden latitude zone for tea production. In China alone, more than 60 kinds of tea are produced here. Among China's top ten traditional teas, except for Anxi Tieguanyin, the other nine famous tea producing areas are all around this latitude.

Why does this latitude bring good tea frequently?

▪Excellent geographical environment

According to long-term investigations and researches by scientists at home and abroad, the area near the 30th parallel of the earth's north latitude has the most diverse geology and landforms, the most peculiar natural ecology, and the most colorful species and mineral deposits.

Due to the drift and squeezing of the plates, there are many famous mountains and rivers near 30 degrees north latitude-here are not only the world's highest peak-Everest, but also Mengding Mountain (Sichuan), Huangshan (Anhui), Wuyi Mountain (Fujian), etc. Waiting for the famous Chinese mountains.

The high mountains and clouds produce good tea, and the unique topography creates an excellent geographical environment for the growth of high-quality tea.

Suitable climate

30 degrees north latitude is in the transition zone between the subtropical and temperate zones. Therefore, the four seasons are distinct, the climate is mild, and the rainfall is abundant. Therefore, the vegetation is lush, which is especially suitable for the growth of tea trees.

It is dominated by forests, mountains, hills, etc. It has a complete natural ecosystem, high forest coverage, good ecological environment and relatively fertile soil, which has laid a solid foundation for the abundance of high-quality tea.

Suitable climatic conditions and complex geological changes have created a rich diversity of species at 30 degrees north latitude. The Shennongjia, Yarlung Zangbo River Grand Canyon and other places at this latitude are even known as the "biological gene bank", and the Wuyi Mountain in Fujian at this latitude is a national nature reserve and a world cultural and natural heritage site. Known as the key to the gene bank.

At 30 degrees north latitude, it is a peculiar geological belt created by the earth’s extraordinary craftsmanship.
