Our Puer Tea Company
Quality - The Wenlong company produces tea for the famous China Tea Company, also known as Zhong Cha, the second largest tea company in China. The Wenlong company also sells tea under the family's lesser known personal Wenlong brand. Our sourcing and relationships allow you to buy a very high quality tea at a great value.
Our Wenlong brand tea is hand picked from pesticide-free mountain puer tea trees which generally range in age from 60 to 200 years old. Some special wild trees are as old as 1000 years. They come from the remote Feng Qing/Lincang areas in Yunnan, China (Elevation 5900 feet, 1800 meters.) Their deep, extensive roots bring vital minerals and nutrients to the tree and produce a tea of superior quality and taste. Many other tea companies, including many other puer tea companies, grow their tea in cultivated farms in low-lying areas using fertilizers and pesticides.
Our tea is processed in both our Feng Qing and Kunming factories (see our slideshow section.) It is naturally aged in healthy conditions. The tea is further aged in the United States, in the renowned Russian River vineyards area of Sonoma County, California, and in the fresh air and year-round moderate temperature and humidity of Marin County, California. It is an ideal place to naturally age puer tea. We do not use the artificial technique of wet-storage to hasten the aging process.
The owners personally taste and select every tea and every shipment to ensure that it meets their high standards of quality.

Pictured above, Larry and Yang Su (on right) with Tea Shen (in green), son of the inventor of the Piao I teapot, and Cecelia Chang of Piao I.
Larry and Yang Su Chin and their two sons lived for many years in Marin County, California, but recently moved to Sonoma County, California. Larry enjoys kayaking in the San Francisco Bay, roller blading, climbing and working out. He drinks puer tea to relax, for its smooth, mellow taste, and to stay healthy.
Yang Su enjoys gardening, fashion design, and food. After drinking about 40-60 ounces of Pure Puer Tea a day, she lowered her cholesterol from 227 to 183. Her family has a history of high cholesterol. Although she was not overweight, Yang Su lost the small amount of weight she had been trying to lose for the last ten years. She also found that after drinking black puer tea she was able to sleep well at night; something which she had not been able to do since the birth of her two sons. Both she and her husband found that their digestion and bowel regularity improved after drinking the tea.
It is Yang Su's personal experience with Pure Puer Tea that made her interested in starting the Pure Puer Tea Company with her husband. For 5 years she had tried to lower her cholesterol without taking prescription medicine. Even after carefully watching her diet and exercising, she was unable to lower her cholesterol below 200. She believes Pure Puer Tea helped her to get the results she had been trying to achieve in an enjoyable, natural and healthy way. She and her husband hope to help others have a healthy, enjoyable experience and also learn about the Chinese tea culture.
In January 2011 Yang Su and Larry had their cholesterol levels retested. They were able to compare them to blood tests taken before they had ever tried puer tea. The results showed that for both of them the ratio of bad cholesterol (LDL) to good cholesterol (HDL) was significantly lowered. Their only significant dietary change during this time was drinking Pure Puer Tea.
Larry and Yang Su are not doctors or medical experts and make no medical claims with regard to Pure Puer Tea. This information is based on their personal experience and research.
