The Farm Story

Chen Qingwen is a highly skilled tea master who specializes in making white, black, and wulong tea. He has been in the tea business for nearly 40 years and is highly dedicated to maintaining his organic white tea garden. He frequently visits the garden to check on the plants and their growth so he can make informed decisions on when to harvest. He is very familiar with the unique characteristics of each tea cultivar and is highly skilled at blending teas to achieve the desired flavor. The garden is fully committed to avoiding herbicides and only uses organic fertilizers such as goat manure and fermented rapeseed paste to enrich the soil. This helps preserve the natural biodiversity in the garden and ensures compliance with EU organic certification standards. Hand weeding is the largest portion of work in the garden, necessitating a staff of over 90 people to maintain it throughout the year. They divide into several teams to weed different hills in the garden.

  • Boil the water to 95°C.
  • Weight tea leaves at a ratio of 1:100 in the kettle. Adjust the amount based on your preference and the type of tea you're using.
  • Pour the hot water over the tea leaves, ensuring that all the leaves are fully saturated. Use a circular motion to evenly wet the leaves.
  • Start the timer and let the tea steep. Tea generally requires 3-5 minutes of steeping time, but this can vary based on personal preference and the specific type of tea. Experiment to find your ideal steeping time.
  • Keep an eye on the timer and avoid over-steeping, as it can lead to a bitter taste. Adjust the steeping time according to your taste preferences.
  • Drain the brewed tea from the brewer.

Adjustments can be made to suit your personal taste preferences and the specific characteristics of the tea you choose.
