DUAN'S FAMILY FARM
Duan grew up on tea farms and has been involved with tea growing & production for his entire life. He is one of the most prolific & enthusiastic tea producers, and our sourcing partner has worked with him for over a decade. Through the years, Duan has pioneered many organic farming initiatives, curated his own small production facility, and forged partnerships with producers and farmers all around Henan, China. Today, he owns several of his own tea gardens.
The entire production of this ginseng oolong tea is handled exclusively in Duan’s own production facility. Each batch is produced by hand in very small quantities, and Duan’s entire family is involved in the processing from start to finish. They are incredibly passionate about producing unique, artisanal teas, and they are always experimenting with new ways to produce high quality teas, all by hand. He is always excited to share new teas that he’s working on and is beyond grateful for the opportunity to share his artistic handiwork with the world.
We can enjoy a wide range of aromas and flavors in oolong tea thanks to the different production styles and unique tea cultivars. The trademark characteristic of an oolong tea is the semi-oxidation process, but the degree of oxidation can range from 8% to 85% depending on the variety and length of time before firing. It requires great attention to both timing and temperature in repeated stages of rolling, shaping and firing until the desired amount of bruising and browning of leaves has been achieved. The final leaves are usually rolled into strands or curled into small beads.
