Taiwan – Gunpowder style

High above the din of modern Taipei, up where the sunbright and picturesque mountains meet the moist ocean air, grow some of the finest teas available on world markets. Ascending into the mountains of Taipei county, one is immediately reminded why early Portuguese explorers called the island Isla Formosa, beautiful island.

On one such trip, our Master Taster discovered the source of some Taiwan green teas he’d tasted down in the city. We’re pleased to offer these here. Known for their rich, grassy brew, Taiwan’s green teas are sure to please. Formosa…beautiful.
