Origin

12 China See DynasTea
The delicious pure oolongs, ranging from a somewhat heavier more pronounced oolong, to an oolong with a silky soft taste come from Wuhan the capital of Hubei Province in China. Many are familiar with the Silk Road, while the “Camel Route of the grasslands” is less well known.
From the late 17th century, during the Qing Dynasty, Wuhan was the starting point of the tea trade route to Mongolia. This trade route was also called the “Camel Route of the grasslands.”

22 Malawi See Lake of Stars
These delicious teas and herbs are sourced from a unique tea plantation in the Shire Highlands of Malawi (Africa) where special quality teas and herbs are hand picked and artfully processed.

32 Japan See Fuji
This delicious rare tea comes from
Kagoshima. Kagoshima is located at the southernmost tip of Japan, and unlike China, Japan produces almost exclusively green tea. To get a green tea, it is important to prevent the leaves from oxidizing after harvest. Oxidation means to turn brown under the influence of oxygen. In China, oxidation of the tea is prevented by heating the tea in a wok. In Japan, they do this by steaming the green teas. The Fukamushicha is a deeply steamed green tea. This means that the tea is steamed longer than regular resulting in a fuller rich umami flavor.

42 South Africa See Good Hope
Rooibos is also called “bush tea.” Rooibos is in fact a shrub with yellow flowers that grows naturally near Cedar Mountain. Although this shrub can grow as tall as half a meter to a meter, this plant is usually harvested at a height of 20 cm during the period January through March.

The needle-like leaves are green when picked. Then the leaves are bruised and wetted, triggering a chemical fermentation process. This creates the beautiful dark red color, after which the needles are placed in the African sun the next day to oxidize further. For this reason, rooibos is also called “red tea” in addition to “bush tea.”
