The drone light show, comprised of eight parts, is designed to showcase the development of tea culture in Jiujiang, one of China's three largest tea markets, and increase the popularity of local tea brands.

Framed against the city's night view, the drones flew in a coordinated fashion and formed various patterns, including Mount Lushan, a tea seedling, a tea tree and a tea-picking girl.

The international expo, running from May 29 to 31, also includes a forum on the culture of famous tea and spring, a summit on black tea development and visits of local tea plantations. It aims to spread tea culture, boost the tea industry and promote the integration of tea and tourism in Jiujiang.

The event is expected to gather more than 700 government officials, global tea company representatives, distributors, experts, organization purchasers, and individual consumers to attend.

Jiujiang, a city along the Yangtze River with a time-honored history of 2,200 years, has been an important tea production and distribution center in China since ancient times. Its Lushan Yunwu (cloud and mist) tea and Ninghong black tea have won tea prizes and earned a top reputation in China and abroad. The city is also home to many mountain springs, such as Gulian, Zhaoyin and Longchishui, the water of which has contributed a lot to the aroma of the tea.

Jiujiang now has more than 23,000 hectares of tea-planting area and more than 200 tea companies. The city is working to accelerate the upgrading of its tea industry by leveraging the local culture of tea and spring as well as promoting the integrated development of tea and tourism industries.
