People work on the tea plantations in Ludishao village, close to Guiyang, Guizhou province, China, 27 May 2021.

Ludishao village is a tea-manufacturing area in Guiyang that is home to eight tea firms and four tea cooperatives with a combined revenue forecast of approximately 110 million Yuan (about 14 million Euro) for 2021, creating jobs and increasing income for over 1,500 local rural residents.

Higher classes of tea cost up to 5,000 Yuan per kilogram (about 640 Euro), and farmers picking tea leaves can earn from 100 to 300 Yuan a day (about 13 to 40 Euro) depending on the amount of leaves they have picked.
