In about 1568 AD, the Ancestors of Jiang built Zheng Shan Tang and was the first one to produce the black tea called Lapsang Souchong, which became the origin of black tea in the world.
In 1604 AD, the Lapsang Souchong started its journey across the sea and then it became so popular that it quickly swept the European region, and finally worldwide. It created the Afternoon Tea Culture that affected the life style of the date all over the world.
In 1820 AD, it has gradually evolved into Gong Fu black teas, such as Dian Hong. Qi Hong etc.
Since the Xingcun Souchong created. (Xingcun Souchong is the black tea that selected from Wuyi Mountain only, and made in Xingcun County, another name of Lapsang Souchong at that time)
In 1997 AD, Mr. Jiang Yuanxun, the 24th generation inheritor of Lapsang Souchong, created the Yuanxun Tea factory。
In 1999 AD, the factory was certified organic by NOP (National Organic Program from USA).
In 2000, are the earliest factory in Fujian Province, China to obtain international organic tea certification, and have obtained EU (Germany) BCS organic food certification and Japan JAS organic product certification.
In 2002, the tea factory established the Fujian Wuyi mountain National Nature Reserve Zheng Shan Tang Co. Ltd. Located in Tongmu County, in the center of the Nature Reserve that lapsang souchong originated from.
Also, the black tea from Zheng Shan Tang received the certification of designation of origin. Which means the Wuyi Lapsang Souchong Black Tea were protected by national geographical indications.
In 2005, suggested by his sincere friend, Mr. Jiang Yuanxun, the 24th inheritor of Lapsang Souchong, the founder of Zheng Shan Tang, led his team to innovate based on the four hundred years of the black tea culture and tea making techniques, and finally develop the new high-end black tea—Jin Jun Mei. And create series of unique and high-quality black tea such as Fei Zi Xiao, wild tea and Junmei Hong etc.
In 2010, Zheng Shan Tang broke through geographical restrictions and cooperated with high quality tea producing areas across the China to export Junmai techniques (Experience from Jin Jun Mei Producing Process) nationwide. We have traveled around China's tea producing areas, carefully selecting the top ten classic and high-quality tea producing areas in China: Henan Xinyang, Zhejiang Shaoxing, Sichuan Mengshan, Guizhou, Hunan, Hubei Enshi, Yunnan Gaoligong Mountain, Anhui Huangshan, Shandong Zhucheng, exporting the innovative black tea production and processing technology - Junmei technology, to build the Junmei Chinese black tea industry system.
Why we created Junmei China Black Tea?
- Jin Jun Mei Black tea produced from Wuyi mountain National reserve only. The production area has limited geographic range, limited production, and demand outstrips supply.
- We traveled around the China and found most of tea producing areas in China overcapacity, overall oversupply.
- Many High-quality tea producing areas are traffic congestion and economic backwardness, by exporting the Junmei craft to drive local development.
- Create a Black Tea that from China best tea producing areas. Build a Brand and promote standardized development.
Nowadays, Zheng Shan Tang Tea Company has 8 Brands. And Zheng Shan Tang is the top grade black tea brand with more than 400 years of black tea culture and skills inherited.
