Weizi et Denis Mazerolle : Filleule des Fées

Weizi and Denis are the pioneers of tea plantation in France: a demanding activity open to the world, just like this passionate Franco-Chinese couple. The Filleule des Fées plantation takes root in the heart of the Blavet Valley, in Brittany. In 2006, Denis and Weizi planted 10 tea bushes in the middle of nature following a trip to China. The gardens now have 25,000 tea trees spread over nearly 3 hectares.

The Filleule des Fées camellias grow without fertilizers or pesticides, drawing on the acidic granite soil of Brittany. Its morning mists, its hygrometry and its climate make it an ideal place to grow. More than a hundred varieties are present in the plantation. They are the fruit of an entirely natural pollination.

Denis is also the founder in 2016 of the association Tea Grown In Europe which federates European tea producers. For my part, I participated in the adventure of Weizi and Denis through the tasting of their teas and a contribution to their organoleptic structuring. Filleule des Fées also supported me in the launching of my plantation in Correze, by providing me with tea plants.

Thank you Weizi and Denis, happy to share your journey.
