The Wen Family
“The reason I work in tea is no big mission or any ‘noble cause,’ it’s merely my passion for the drink and the pleasure and vitality it inspires." Ms. Wen
In the vaunted Wudong region, there is no time for young stock, beginner’s luck, or false pedigrees. Ms. Wen grew up on the tea farm with her family, but left for secondary school, and then for a job in real estate. With time, she realized she was happiest in her childhood environs and returned to the storied family farm. Wen is a surname that carries a lot of meaning in Wudong, and is tied to the centuries-old origins of ‘Song Zhong’ itself. Today, they are one of the most revered farms on the mountain with an arbor of ancient trees to their name.
