Verdant Tea

Our Commitments

Truly Sustainable Farming


Our partners strive to farm tea in harmony with their environments, leaving native vegetation and preserving wildlife habitats for a balanced ecosystem and healthier tea.

Beyond Organic

No pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers. Our partners utilize traditional techniques like crop rotation and organic solutions like canola and soybeans to maintain clean tea and truly sustainable fields for generations to come.

Economic Sustainability

Each of our partners sets their own prices. This way, each partner can afford to pour their lives into their work, and hand down a tradition to their children that is worth carrying on.

Huang Rui Guang

Wudongshan, Guangdong

oolong tea and black tea

Pioneers and community leaders in Laoshan Village,  the He family was one of the first to plant tea on the misty ocean-facing slopes of the Taoist Holy Mountain they call home.

We are proud to share the He Family’s tea every season, and we are dedicated to spreading appreciation for their craft while sharing their unique and innovative teas with the rest of the world.

An accomplished technical master of tea, Huang Rui Guang is affectionately called a ‘modern tea sage’ by many because of his lifetime of cultivation in the skills of planting, processing and tasting tea.

In 2012, he was conferred the title of a recognized Cultural Treasure by the city government of Chaozhou. Today, he is working to pass on his lifetime of experience to his two sons Wei Ming and Zhen Ming.
