Terroir and Tea

Our tea comes from Hsinchu county, in the north west of Formosa. This tea is very unique, as it needs green leafhoppers to eat parts of the leaves to create the distinctive sweetness of this tea. These leafhoppers are only present in the summer. The tea was introduced in Europe by Queen Elizabeth II of the British Royal Court, who took such a liking to the tea that she called it the most beautiful tea of all

Taste and aroma

A pure and very elegant flavor consisting of ripe red fruits, combined with an overwhelming sweetness that resembles pure nectar. The tea has a smooth flavor and an aftertaste that lingers on with its increasingly intense honey-like sweetness
