How long have you been growing tea and what got your started?
I have worked with tea for 25 years. I work in tea just because I love tea.

Can you describe a typical day out in the field?
Every morning I will have my breakfast and a cup of tea, then I will go out working at 8am. I will take a rest at noon and finish my job at 3pm.

What is your favorite part of growing tea?
I like the firing step. We need to pick out all the buds and stalks first, then fire the tea by hand. I love the melon seeds smell.

Conversely, what is the hardest part of your job?
The hardest part is picking out the buds, stalks and all the impurity substance. It takes lots of time and attention to do this.

Are there any tips you can give on how to best brew your tea?
Use a glass cup to brew this wonderful tea. You can see the beautiful leaves dancing in the cup and you will love it.
