Tea Garden

The Wenyang Tea Garden is located in Guanlin Town, Fuding City, with elevation between 500-800 metres. The weather here is warm and humid, with abundant rainfall. The tea plantation is surrounded by fog which creates the perfect conditions for tea bushes, resulting in a rich array of micro-minerals and organic nutrients accumulating in the tea leaves. The tea plants growing here are mainly of the Fuding Dahao and Fuding Dabai varieties.

Tea Farmer
Tea farmer Mr. Lin

Mr. Lin, who was born in Fuding in Fujian Province, grew up surrounded by tea. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were all tea farmers. When he was in elementary school, he helped pick tea after school during the tea-picking season when there were not enough people to help with the harvesting. That’s when his dream of entering the tea business was born. Mr Lin says: “My original idea was simply to make a good life for my family through my tea-growing business. But in 1993, when my tea business had gradually developed, I changed my mind. I want to create a long-term Organic Tea business.” Talking to Mr Lin, our impression was of a man with a very frank manner who speaks quickly, walks quickly and works quickly.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that Mr. Lin is the founding father of Chinese white tea in the modern day. He owns nearly 2800 acres of high-grade tea gardens in Fuding, including 500 acre organic tea garden - the first organic tea garden in Fujian that has earned organic certification in the USA, Europe and Japan. He also owns a 200 acre jasmine tea garden in Guangxi Province.

In 2008, his Silver Needle White Tea won the gold medal at the annual Chinese White Tea festival in Beijing.

History

Scented green teas have a history that stretches back over a thousand years. The innovation of adding spices and flowers to green teas started during the Chinese Song Dynasty, around 960AD.

During the Ming Dynasty, in the 1500's, the modern production method of Jasmine scented tea, with the flowers being added to the tea during processing, prior to drying, was introduced and perfected. In this time though, jasmine tea was still rare, due to the increased complexities the processing required.

However later in the mid 1800's during the Qing Dynasty, production techniques were perfected and the number of tea farms rapidly increased, leading to greater production volumes and cheaper prices, culminating in it becoming hugely popular in China, a popularity that has remained to this day.
