Tea is a non genetic inheritance

In fact, in the intangible cultural heritage, tea culture is also an important part of it. Tea culture is a witness of history and an important carrier of Chinese culture. It contains the unique spiritual value, way of thinking, imagination and cultural awareness of the Chinese nation, reflecting the vitality and creativity of the nation.

A large number of research results show that the Chinese Yunnan Xishuangbanna is the source of world tea, the ancient tea cultivated Bada Daheishan 1700 years old wild ancient tea and nannuoshan 800 years old, has become a living fossil tea origin "syndrome". In the history of planting tea, making tea and drinking tea for thousands of years, tea has long been the most important trade product and cultural link between China and the East and the West. It can be said that tea not only shows the way of life and cultural crystallization of a particular history, region or ethnic group, but has even become an important symbol of Chinese civilization.

The non material culture is closely related to the corresponding material and culture, and it can not be cut apart. The tea production technology as an example, Chinese "ten tea" products can be said to have become the representative of China tea culture; and behind the unique tea plan, production process and skills, process control, integrated in one of the links is the intangible cultural intangible. One of the representatives of green tea is Longjing West Lake, which is famous for its beautiful appearance, aroma and taste. As a representative of material culture, the traditional means of production of Longjing tea and non-material culture are interdependent and indispensable.

For all kinds of tea making technology was included in the "intangible cultural heritage", we are a comprehensive protection system of heritage from generation to generation tea tea understanding, experience, skills, and practical achievements in the process of technological change and innovation; protection is as a kind of traditional culture from the past to the future life and growth in nature the source of living water.

But to develop the tea industry, it must be mechanized. "Without mechanized production, there is no productivity and less competitiveness.

Zhang Jiakun, President of the tea Exchange Association on both sides of the Taiwan Straits, believes that exploring the path of innovation for the development of the tea industry can draw on some of the excellent experiences of the development of coffee.
