Huangmei is famous for its tea and tea-picking songs, which evolved into Huangmei opera (黃梅戲 or 黃梅調; pinyin: Huángméixì or Huángméidiào). The opera was derived from "Caicha" (tea-picking — "cha" means "tea") tunes and folk ditties which people sang while picking tea. It is a combination of local folk songs, dances, and some ancient operas. Huangmei opera flourished in the 18th century to become one of the most famous traditional Chinese opera forms.
