Villager Yao Chengjian cleans his car in Tongmu Village of Wuyi Mountain, southeast China's Fujian Province, April 12, 2018. Yao used to work out of town for years. After he returned to hometown and joined in the business of tea production, his annual income has reached nearly 200,000 yuan (about 31,828 U.S. dollars). Located in the natural reserve of the Wuyi Mountain, Tongmu is a remote village with an elevation of nearly a thousand meters. Thanks to the abundant vegetation resources, local villagers began to produce black tea in recent years. 55-year-old Jiang Yuanxun is a native tea grower in the village. He has developed a business model and attracts more and more people in the production of black tea. In 2017, the annual per capita income of the village reached 20,810 yuan (about 3,311 U.S. dollars). Jiang has introduced the method of tea production to other villages of China, helping tea growers shake off poverty and increase income. (Xinhua/Zhang Guojun)
