  BEIJING - On July 13th, a global promotion meeting named “China in the New Era: Hubei, from the Yangtze River to the World” was held in the Blue Hall of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), which astoundingly impressed the world. The green brick tea and the Ancient Battlefield of Chibi were demonstrated in the promotion meeting, having attracted great attention from both the domestic and foreign media.

  As one of the cities on the Yangtze River Economic Belt and “the Belt and Road” Initiative, and the major cradle of the Sino-Russian Tea Road, Chibi city showed up at the promotion meeting through the medium of tea. Quan Wei, the 5th generation inheritor of the Zhaoliqiao brick tea manufacturing skills, held in both hands the tea product (imitation) supervised by Juxingshun which used to be exported to Russia a hundred years ago, and there is only one authentic product in the world. People can see from the picture that the Dachuan brick tea behind him has a diameter of 1 meter and a weight of 66.8 kilograms.

  The brick tea was originated from Chibi city, and was first produced in Qin and Han dynasties, which became a fad in Tang and Song dynasties, and later thrived in Ming and Qing dynasties. The Yangloudong ancient street of Ming and Qing dynasties in Zhaoliqiao town is the strong proof of this history. In its booming time, there are hundreds of tea merchants having a business operation mode of “shop in the front and the factory behind”, and there were dozens of green brick tea shops with time-honored brands. Currently, the local tea enterprises, like the Zhaoliqiao Tea Factory, Yangloudong Tea Industry Co., Ltd, Qiantanheng Tea Industry Co., Ltd, and Dongzhuang Tea Industry Co., Ltd sprung up like mushrooms and develop dramatically in Chibi.

  The Chibi inscriptions on precipice stood out in the Hubei propaganda film this time.

  The Chibi Ancient Battlefield of the Three Kingdoms is the place of the Battle of Red Cliff, the only one which still remains in its origin appearance among renowned 7 battles which defeat enemy troops with a force inferior in number. The Jitou cliff facing the Yangtze River in Chibi city is carved with 2 characters “赤壁”, which is said to be written by Zhou Yu, thus this place is also called “the Zhoulang Chibi”, and it is the earliest cultural heritage that exists in Chibi.
