TEA HEALS 茶療
A good cup of tea, not only should smell good but leaves an unforgettable aroma lingering on your taste buds. There are many varieties of tea, the difference in the place of production and the tea-making technique, therefore even if it belongs to the same type of tea, the aroma, taste, attributes, and effects will be different, making each tea very unique and special. Tea refers to the sprouts or newly-grown leaves of Theaceae plants. Tea was a detoxicating agent in ancient times, while later tea applies in eating and drinking. Depending on different production processes, tea can be categorised into six categories: green tea, black tea, white tea, yellow tea, Oolong tea and black tea.
"TEA HEALS" has been founded since 2020, which aims to procure a variety of high-quality and aromatic tea from a sustainable source. In addition, their expert team shares knowledge about tea and herbal medicine to audience in both traditional and scientific context, enabling them to understand their preferences. The objective is to provide choice for them to achieve “Tea therapy for mind and body" maintaining individuals’ health and balance.
