It is onthe higher slopes of these mountains that most of the teawhich finds its way to the marts of England, Australia,and America is grown. The famous Bohea hills are atthe extreme north of Fukien. The people of the province are said to number22,876,540, but it is impossible to say whether thisestimate is at all accurate, and it would probably be nearerthe truth to reckon the population at 15,000,000. TheFukienese, together with their southern neighbours theCantonese, have been called the Anglo-Saxons of China,and there can be no doubt that they are more active, moreindependent, more self-reliant, and better business peoplethan those living in the north and west of the Empire. 54. ? .-•fk^l ^
