Yingde (postal: Yingtak; Chinese: 英德) is a historical city in the north of Guangdong Province, China. The city is on the Beijiang River, a tributary of the Pearl River. Administratively, it is part of the Qingyuan prefecture-level city.
It is famous for its Yingde Stone and Ying De Hong tea. In 1963 the British royal family popularized Yingde's black tea worldwide after offering the tea to guests at the Queen's Banquet. Yingde's tea history dates back to over 1,200 years ago. It is considered to be one of the top three places in the world to grow black tea.
