I grew up in Wuyishan, China. Where Da Hong Pao tea is from and home to the original bushes on Wuyi Mountain. Like most people in Wuyishan, my family is in the tea business. Our farm is located up on a mountainside above the farmland which grows rice and vegetables, a few km away from the famous cliffs. When processed at my uncles tea factory the leaves are transformed into the beautiful twists and deep brown color of Wuyi oolong tea.

When I moved to California I thought that tea would no longer be such a big part of my life. Before long I decided to start Old Ways Tea Company in order to share Wuyi culture and tea. The name Old Ways Tea is a reminder that tea is a drink with a rich cultural tradition. This store can help you be a part of that tradition by providing access to a variety of tea and teaware.
