Sun Moon Lake is located at altitude of 700m in Taiwan, surrounded by mountains and lakes with remarkable environment for growing black teas. The unique climates and soils, make the quality of Sun Moon Lake black tea stand out from other tea varieties in the world. 

Our black tea is planted in a small scale tea farm in Sun Moon Lake using non-pesticide, non-chemical fertilizer cultivation. Because of the natural farming planting patterns, unlike large tea company, we can only sustain smaller yields of tea each harvest. But we believe it’s the quality that counts, not the quantity!
