Crafted By the Cheng Family

Dedicated craftspeople and farmers, the Cheng Family has a beautiful, high-elevation plot above Guixi Village, an excellent micro-climate for Qimen Black Tea in Anhui.
 
Master Cheng picks the tiny buds for his family's teas at the very peak of spring and finishes them by hand in his tiny workshop, coaxing out complexity and the underlying minerality of rocky Huangshan.

    The famous Huangshan Maofeng is all about beautiful, perfect buds that dance in the teapot like silver needle white tea or Dragonwell. The Cheng Family picks their Pre-Qing Ming early spring buds on their high elevation mountain plot near Qimen and Huangshan entirely by hand to preserve their perfect shape, and works to quickly finish the buds with minimal heat and withering time, locking in fresh flavor and deep minerality that shows off the textural complexity of one of the finest green teas in the world.
