Of the 11 Fair Trade tea companies in China, 7 are in Hunan, and this Silver Summit green comes from the Luo Ping area. The hills here are part of the WuLing Mountain range, and although 700 m up may not seem very high, the ride up proved long and hard. A drive of 8 hours from such a garden to Changsha means that even dispatching samples is not a simple task.

The gardens in this Fair Trade Coop comprise 1500 hectares (~ 3700 acres) privately owned by farmers who may choose to join the coop. Approximately USD1.10/kg for loose teas and USD0.50/kg for fannings go to the organization to administer. An area known for its teas and oranges, this coop's gardens expects to earn organic status in the year 2020. For the past two years, in anticipation of the certification, tea farmers there have agreed not to set off fireworks. This accompaniment to start of a new year and other celebrations such as births and weddings is a long-held tradition, and foregoing fireworks demonstrates an admirable shared commitment.

This green tea is nuanced and concentrated at the same time, ready to be enjoyed right now. Best taste is obtained by using 1 rounded teaspoon of dry leaf per 6-ounce cup of spring water heated to a temperature of 175° to 185°F, infusing 3 to 4 minutes.
