Sustainable forest tea stewardship
Rishi tea buying team conducting an interview with Mr. Neng Yong to learn about how he and his family manage their tea forest during the spring harvest. Mr. Neng Yong and his wife, along with their older children, manage about 10 hectares of mountain tea forest sustainably. The ecological balance and biodiversity found in this rugged forestry prevents the need for any sort of chemical fertilizer or pesticide. The tea trees grown naturally, nurtured by healthy soil and abundant spring rains.
