“Is it true or some kind of publicity stunt that the qualification for a job as tea-picking worker is being a virgin with C cup breasts?” The shocking job ad of Henan Gushi Xijiuhua Mountain Development Company had triggered heated discussion among netizens. However, the recruiter responded that it was indeed true due to “inherited customs.”
The daily wage of a full-time tea-picking worker is 500 Yuan
On April 14, a talent recruitment website of Xinyang posted an ad that Henan Gushi Xijiuhua Scenic Mountain Development Co., Ltd. was to recruit female full-time Kouchun (mouth and lip) tea picking workers who were supposed to have never had any sexual experience with at least C cup breasts. What’s more, the body of the candidate is not allowed to have any scars and injuries or other marks.
According to job requirements, the candidates should pick Kouchun tea everyday in adherence to the established date of spring tea, and they were supposed to clean their mouth and body on time everyday, and to have physical exercises as well. The daily wage is as high as 500 Yuan. After the job description went public, it was reposted onto many major forums and triggered heated discussion.
"Is it recruiting staff or dating? Why such strict requirements?" Some Internet users believed that the company recruitment was too "shocking" and "not credible” and it may be some kind of self-promotion or a publicity stunt.
“The requirements are quite extraordinary. They are really awesome and forceful!” Some netizens were shocked. “It was the first time to see such recruitment that required virgins and large breasts, it was really beyond comprehension.“
“They did not ask the candidates to have any working experience but also required them to have never had any sexual experience. This is too ridiculous.” Some Internet users criticized the recruitment violating personal privacy, a great insult to their dignity.
The Kouchun Tea picking Show
On April 14, reporters found this recruitment information on the official website of Henan Gushi Xijiuhua Scenic Mountain. They are also hiring other positions like tea-fryer, sales representatives, tea-artist teachers and others.
Responding to public opinion, Li Yong, spokesman of the Gushi Xijiuhua Mountain Scenic Area told the reporter that it was indeed true about the recruitment. According to Li Yong, from April 16 to May 18, this area will hold the first “ Xijiuhua Tea Bamboo Cultural Festival", among which "virgin Kouchun tea-picker’s performance will play a part in the activity.”
According to the legend, Xinyang Maojian tea growing in Jigong hill was called "Kouchun tea.” When the tea was brewed with boiling water, from the mist nine fairies will appear and then vanish away one after another. If one drinks it, one would feel refreshed and relaxed, and it can cure diseases.
“The recruited 10 tea-picking women will have a performance on the Bamboo Tea Cultural Festival, which is intended to pass on the historical heritage and customs. The tea they pick will be tasted by the visitors or go to auction “, told Li Yong.
However, Ouyang Daokun, general manager of Xinyang Lu Yu International Tea City and also a renowned expert of the Chinese tea industry thought the explanations were questionable. He believed that "Kouchun tea" is, after all, a historical legend. Company that uses this for publicity stunt is in bad taste.
Some more background on the “mouth lip tea” picking:
It is also said that at the beginning of the last century, some Chinese tea sellers experimented with the idea of “tea in front of breasts.” Virgins at the age of 16 were asked to start picking leaves in the middle of the night and put leaves into their clothes between their breasts. When they finished their work before sunrise, the leaves should have absorbed enough of the virgins’ body scent, and could make great tea. This practice phased out even before it ever had the chance to become widespread.
The hiring company expects girls they hire to keep tea leaves in their mouths before making tea out of them. Virginity and curviness are selling points the company exploits to convince customers that such tea is of yin (femininity) and purity.
Pickers are asked to gather tea leaves by their mouths and spit them into a “holder” placed between their breasts
I wonder how much they get paid. Better be more than the hookers and secretaries.
Works out to about 50 bucks a day a fortune in China
Great article! How is the recruting going I wonder??
Shanghai’s shipping port is at significantly reduced capacity because of a truck drivers’ strike in its third day and tea picked by virgins in the top story?
I wonder if the type of disgusting people who would pay top dollar (or RMB) for this tea would let their own daughter do the job?
Of course not lol you think China is a moral place free of hypocrisy and bigotry?
I want my tea to pass through her vagina….
I expect her vagina to be inspected daily and be certified as not perforated. I want the box to say this tea was picked by a virgin and passed over a non perforated vagina.
Then you should look for Datui Cha, legend has it they are rubbed between virgin thighs.
South American Indians were doing a special alcoholic drink, when the tribe’s young and beautiful females were sitting around a pot, chewing some food (bread?) and after some time spitting it into that pot.
The content of that pot would then stand for few days – microbes doing their job and producing alcoholic drink.
I am not sure if those girls had to be virgins (possibly yes) – but they for sure were required to have good teeth 🙂
And in pre revolution Cuba, the tradition was to have cigars rolled on the thighs of virgins. Unfortunately, if they were to insist on doing this today it will break the children labor laws 🙂
Well, if a woman wants to do something sexual to make money, I guess this is less scary than dressing in kinky clothes and dancing for rich men. If the idea of the boss to hire virgins so that they will have sexual relations with him, that is certainly the worst.
What’s so great about virgins anyway, it’s the 21st century for crying out loud
great content material imperforate about, I bequeath should state. The information is wherefore utterly organized that readers regard fun me patter transfer in that associated seconds. assist corporeal addition.
This gives an idea. A ‘virgins only’ temple/gardens-spring could be created where only virgins below the age of 23 are allowed to enter. This would mean that the spirit of the place could be cleaner than anywhere else in the world, the water could become China’s first ‘holy water’ product.

Trust this blog to explain why for some cakes you need to do all the kneading and stuff and for others it’s important just to mix the stuff quickly! I’ve seen it so often, those warnings “mix just to combine the ingredients and never use a food processor” and I heeded them but never thought about reasons, it’s just stuff you do when you cook and bake (and trust that it makes sense and is not one of those “family traditions” that stem from the fact that the matriarch of the family did not have big enough a dish). So thanks for that. digital marketing
The bunny chow is a safe choice and everyone’s favorite. The others not so much. You’ll either find them exotic and delicious or flat out disgusting. There’s no middle ground.Darren Wogman
