The average elevation of Dexing Villige of Medog County, Nyingchi City, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, is about 1,000 m; the average annual temperature reaches 16 ℃, and the annual rainfall is over 2,358 mm, which is suitable for the tea growth.

In recent years, implementing the development ideas of county Party committee and the county government of Medog, Dexing Village has taken tea as the leading industry and stuck to the industrial operation and development model of "industry + farmer + company". After picking the tea, tea companies contact farmers, and purchase the tea in the producing areas, which solves the problem of slow sale of tea. At present, tea planting area reaches 1.11 km² in Dexing. Up to now, a total of 1,919.5 kg of spring tea (single bud) has been picked, with an income of 575,850 yuan RMB and an increase of 715 yuan RMB in per capita.

The development of the tea industry in Dexing Villige not only expands the village collective economy and increases people's income, but also mobilizes villagers' enthusiasm to develop tea industry, transforming geographical advantages and resource advantages into economic advantages.
