Angel's Comment:

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

Lychee black tea is made in the process of baking the fresh lychees into dried ones, using the Gongfu black tea as material and smoking them together under long-time low temperature. The tea tastes sweet, mellow and smooth with pleasant lychee aroma. While brewing, you can add other materials based on your own taste, like: lemon, rose, milk, honey and so on. Furthermore, in the hot summer, a cup of iced DIY lychee black tea is also a nice choice.

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 Lin Jian 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.
