Meet the farmer: Huang Jian Lin - Dongting, Jiangsu Q How long have you been growing tea and what got you started? A“At the age of 20 I began to work in tea area. My hometown is a tea area, everybody loves tea. So I also start to do tea which is my first and only job till now.” Q Can you describe a typical day out in the field? A“I go out at about 8am in the morning. It is the best time to pick up tea leaves. But the picking season for the tender pi luo chun is very short. Only in early spring. So the rest of the time I will help for production and do some weeding in the afternoon.” Q What is your favorite part of growing tea? A“I like to see the pi luo chun after production at last. I love the fresh green looking and pleasant aroma of this tea. I do enjoy it after hard work..” Q Conversely, what is the hardest part of your job? A“I hate the grass which grows too fast. I have to keep on weeding. I must be very careful not to hurt the tea trees when weeding. So normally I work very slow and take long time.” Q What do you think makes your tea unique or better than others? A“Tongting lake is a beautiful place for growing pi luo chun. Of course some other places can also grow this tea. But not as tender and pure as ours. This is because the special area we have. We have mountain and lake which keeps the field wet and suitable for tea trees. Besides, in our area we only made pi luo chun which we have paid all the attention to it. As a result pi luo chun from our area is the most famous one in China.” Q Are there any tips you can give on how to best brew your tea? A“Pi luo chun is very tender. Do not use boiling water with 100 degrees centigrade. Better use the water with 90 degrees centigrade. Second, use glass cup to brew the tea. Do not use teapot with lid. Because pi luo chun needs more air for brewing. While waiting for the tea to be cool down, you can enjoy the beautiful green soup with pleasant aroma from the glass cup.”
