Award Winning Tea

We’re proud to announce that we’ve won the 2nd place in 2016 Gold Medal Tea Competition, which was successfully held on September 20-22, 2016 in Canada. This competition is judged by professional cuppers to distinguish the high quality and best flavor teas that available in the market.

 

Judges comment on our Superfine Jasmine Downy Dragon Pearls Green Tea:

Leaf: True to grade, of good “make”.

Appearance (liquor appearance) : Attractive in color and brightness.

Flavor: Actual flavor characteristics from both a personal perspective and in context of the descriptor.

Overall Impact: Overall delivery of this tea, taking into account leaf, liquor and infused leaf.



Compare with our Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea, this higher-grade Superfine Downy pearls is made from more tender materials, resulting in a softer, better taste, and a stronger jasmine fragrance as well.

Jasmine Dragon Pearl green tea is an entirely handcrafted and top-quality tea, not only a wonderful drink but an elegant work of art as well.

Its production is a long and involved process: the buds and leaves are originally picked in spring, to be dried and then stored and kept cool until the jasmine flowers bloom. These night-blooming flowers are picked early each morning while the petals are still closed. When the flowers do open in early evening, they do so with a popping sound; when this happens the flowers are mixed in with the dried tea and left to sit for around five hours, after which the flowers are removed and the tea is set to carefully dry for a few days.

This scenting process is repeated with fresh flowers for a total of seven times, in the end producing this amazing tea that, in total, takes over a month to make. One pound of dragon pearl tea will take about four pounds of jasmine flowers during this arduous process.

Tea Garden

The Wenyang Tea Garden is located in Guanlin Town, Fuding City, between an elevation of 500 and 800 meters.

The weather here is warm and humid with abundant rainfall, and this combined with an almost constant fog provides perfect conditions for tea bushes, allowing a rich array of micro-minerals and organic nutrients to accumulate in the leaves.

Wenyang Tea Garden

The tea plants growing here are mainly of the Fuding Dahao and Fuding Dabai varieties.

Tea Farmer
Tea farmer Mr. Lin

Mr. Lin was born in Fuding in Fujian Province and grew up surrounded by tea. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him were all tea farmers; while still in elementary school, Mr. Lin helped pick tea during the seasons when there were not enough workers to help with the harvesting. This is when his dream of entering the tea business was first born: Mr. Lin says “My original idea was simply to make a good life for my family through my tea-growing business. In 1993 when my business had gradually developed, however, I changed my mind: from then, I wanted to create a long-term, entirely organic tea business.” Our impression of Mr. Lin was that he was a man of a frank manner who speaks quickly, walks quickly, and works quickly.

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

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