Chayuan is a quiet and isolated village in the mountains of Wenxian, Gansu, China. This tea growing region was discovered by an environmental non-profit organization called Green Camel Bell founded by Zhao Zhong. Following a significant earthquake in China in 2008 the NGO spent three years in the quaint village of only a few hundred families to develop sustainable systems with green materials and a focus on quality tea processing for the dragonwell tea gardens that had been planted since the 1950's to act as an economic stimulus for the area. The remote mountain area is perfect for adopting organic practices as all the producers can be assured that their gardens are truly organic without the influences of big agriculture in the area.
