    • 7th Generation Organic Tea Farmer
      • For over a thousand years, China’s finest green teas have been grown and prepared in the mountains south of Hángzhōu.  At the end of a winding valley, in a small village at the foot of Fēng Wù mountain, Sòng’s family has lived and cultivated green teas for almost three centuries.  The Fēng Wù mountains moderate climate and 2000’ to 3000’ elevation is ideal for green teas.  The area is almost entirely tree covered, punctuated by small lakes, narrow rivers, and only occasional villages.  The most common visitor to these parts are the mists that envelop the mountain peaks and diffuse soft bluish light on the tall drooping bamboo and rows of neatly planted teas.
