China is the birthplace of black tea, which in China is called, perhaps more appropriately, hong cha – red tea – after its the red colored tea it usually produces. It's history in China can be traced back to the late Ming Dynasty, around the year 1590, when the first black tea – Lapsang Souchong – was produced in the area around Wuyi Mountain in Fujian province.
Tea plays a very important role in our daily life from a long time ago, so when should we drink and which type of tea should we taste desrve to be probed.
We ourselves like to drink organic tea, and we prefer to try to sell it for four reasons.
The first three reasons are that it is healthier for you, it is healthier for the environment and it is healthier for the people growing and producing the tea.
TeaVivre's always try to personally visit and sample potential suppliers before we sell their tea.
In March of 2011 we went on a trip to Fuding in Fujian province, to visit the organic tea gardens from where we source our Silver Needle, Bai Mudan and Bailin Gongfu teas.
