To ensure maximum quality, we only harvest our leaves four times a year. Our older bush teas (luxury teas) are harvested once a year.

Our Spring and Winter harvest are the best due to the low temperatures.

Our farm is at an else

1 We handpick all of our leaves, careful to pick only the optimum leaves. We pick 1 bud+1-2 leaves

2 Then, we sun wither the leaves. This is a carefully timed process and depends fully on the sun.

3 Then comes the indoor withering. We then bring the leaves indoors to cool them now. 

4 After the cooling, they are layed on large bamboo sieves. They are then tossed vigerously to “dance” the leaves, done 5-8 times. This process softens the edges which draws out more flavors.

5 The oxidation part is next, done in an air conditioned environment. The dancong leaves are partially fermented in a large pile overnight. In the morning it is then fired at 180 degrees. 

6 The leaves are then fixed to a temperature of 230 degrees.

7 At this step, the leaves are ready to take on their distinct shape. The leaves are rolled continuously; this crushes the leaves but doesn’t break them. This releases the oils out of the leaves which give it the “dancong taste.”

8 A machine then takes the job of rolling the leaves out of clumps and into individual leaves.

9 The dancong leaves are back in the oven, dehydrating the leaves. This step is done in a wood fired oven, giving the floral taste.

10 We then meticulously check every leaf to make sure it is of upmost quality. We take out all the old leaves and stems.

11 The leaves are ready to be roasted. The dancong maocha is roasted for 10 hours by charcoal roasters, checked every hour or so. This process must be carefully watched.

12 It is finally done! We package our fresh dancong; where it is then shipped to you!
