The Zhengshan Tea Story
The black tea produced by Zhengshan has been around for more than 400 years dating back to the Ming Dynasty (about 1568 AD). The understanding and legacy of the black tea is an important part of the company and to this day it is core to the company's culture.
The craftsmanship of the Zhengshan black tea has been passed down generation to generation over the last 400 years and it is this ancestry that is behind the success and reputation for high quality tea in China and around the world.
