Mrs. Li is one of the few farmers fortunate enough to have a plot of land on the pure and remote mountainside of Shi Feng, where her high elevation Dragonwell is fed by sweet mountain spring water, picked by hand and crafted one leaf at a time by her husband. She cultivates her world-famous tea using entirely organic farming techniques and has the respect of the whole village for her half a century of tea picking experience.

" Mrs. Li immediately pulled out a cloth bag with a sparkle in her eye. “Smell this,” she said. Incredible! There is nothing in the world like fresh picked Dragonwell.... "
