Tea For Her
We recommend these teas for women. With softer tones and subtle yet complex tastes, these are perfect for afternoon tea or catching up on the gossip with friends.
Taiwan is renowned for its semi-fermented teas: Oolongs and even more lightly fermented Pouchongs ('green Oolongs'). Formosa (name given by Portuguese explorers to the island meaning 'beautiful') Pouchong, is slightly less oxidized than other oolongs and has the lightness and freshness of an unfermented green tea but is sweeter and more fragrant.

Tisane (Herbal Tea)
The most tea-like of herbal teas, 100% organic, naturally caffeine free Rooibos (also known as Redbush tea) is renowned for its health properties. This single estate Rooibos has been selected exclusively from the Wiedouw tea farm in the Cederberg mountains of South Africa, has been organic since 1997 as well as Rainforest Alliance and Fair-trade certified. The production process has remained largely unchanged and makes use of the natural hot and sunny climate, where the tea is entirely handpicked and cured naturally in the sun. This award winning special long-cut Rooibos has a soothing aroma and sweet vibrant taste with an almost 'tea-like' texture that produces multiple flavorsome cups using the same leaves.
