Angel's Comment:

This is the first choice of afternoon tea for the tea lovers who love lychee flavor teas.

Lychee is a tropical fruit that natived to the Guangdong and Fujian provinces of China, and this black tea has been flavored with lychee fruits from Guangdong, yielding a delightful sweet, mellow, smooth taste with very pleasant lychee aroma. While brewing you can add other things in based on your own taste, such as lemon, rose, milk, honey, and so on. Furthermore, cold-brewing this tea into iced lychee black tea is an excellent choice for the hot summer.

Tea Farmer
Tea farmer Mr. Lin

Mr. Lin was born in Fuding, Fujian, and has been living in a tea-filled environment all his life. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather are all tea farmers; when in elementary school, Mr. Lin helped pick the tea when there were not enough workers. This led to his dream of becoming further engaged in the tea business. He said: “My original idea was to establish a good life for my family by running a tea business. But when I got to that point in 1993, I changed my mind: Fuding is one of the best places for growing tea. So I wanted to create a long-term organic tea business.”

Mr. Lin is now one of the first founders of Chinese white tea, owning almost 2800 acres of high-quality Fuding tea gardens, including the only organic tea garden in Fujian that has passed all the European, American, and Japanese certifications. This organic garden has also become the national agricultural standard.

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

Tea Bush

Fuding Cai Cha is a type of small-leaf tea tree that reproduces by seeds - and it is also a name for older local varieties of tea. The history of planting Cai Cha stretches back about 1000 years, during which the trees have been known to grow naturally. This species germinates in late spring and grows short but fat tea buds, suitable for black and white teas.

Legend

During the Tang Dynasty of China, a concubine named Yang loved eating lychees. Each year at the height of the fruit’s ripeness, the emperor Tang Minghuang would send many fleets to transport lychees via the Grand Canal from south to north. Along these fleets were various palace tribute teas, but both the emperor and his concubine Yang loved the black tea that occurred as a result of smoking the leaves together with the lychee fruits; because of this, lychee black tea gradually grew in popularity, and became the world’s earliest natural fruit black tea.
