Tea Farmer

A born-and-bred Yunnan farmer, Mr. Zhou has been avidly contributing to the tea business for more than 20 years. A short chat with him made his passion for using traditional tea crafting processes apparent; he values the essential quality inside the tea leaves, and says that his experience comes from spending most of his time in the tea gardens along the mountains. Mr. Zhou is passionate about bringing out that internal quality of the tea to share with tea lovers around the world - and also claims that the best environment for growing the perfect tea is in Fengqing.

Tea Bush

This Dian Hong black tea is made from the Fengqing large-leaf subspecies of the Yunnan large-leaf. It propagates sexually and takes the form of an arbour tree, meaning that it can grow to over six meters tall. 1984, the Fengqing large-leaf species was certified by the Chinese government as a national grade. It contains an abundance of tea polyphenols (30.2%) and catechins (13.4%), as well as 2.9% amino acids and 3.2% caffeine.

History

The best place based on natural environment to grow tea is in Fengqing, Yunnan, which is where Dian Hong black tea was first produced in the 1930s. The first batches were instantly popular and quickly exported through Hong Kong to England and other western countries, and nowadays Dian Hong is one of the most respected and best-known types of Chinese black tea. It is held with the highest regard in China, and is often presented by the government as gifts to visiting dignitaries.
