The origin of Dong Ding tea dates back to 1841 when a scholar named Lin Feng Chi returned from China with a gift of 12 Qing Xin (Green Hearted) tea plants from the famous Wu Yi Mountain tea growing area in Fujian Province.  He planted them on Dong Ding Mountain in Lugu Township, an area ideal for growing quality tea due to its cool, cloud and mist environment.  The Lin tea farm has expanded since that time and is now managed by the 4th generation Lin family, who has inherited the traditional tea making techniques.
