Taiwan produces its own green tea known as Formosa - these teas often have highly distinctive flavours, like our Ronnefeldt Gunpowder, with its herby, grassy taste. This gets its name from the shape of the tea leaves after they are rolled into small pellets – giving them an appearance that closely resembles gunshot.
Other Formosa teas include Ronnefeldt Green Oasis, blended with Moroccan peppermint for a fresh taste, and Ronnefeldt Chun Mee, renowned for its quintessential green-tea flavour. So, if you fancy a tea that’s a bit unusual, Taiwanese Formosa may be just the choice for you.
Green tea isn’t the sole preserve of China and Japan. Other regions also produce delicious varieties, including Darjeeling in India.
Our Ronnefeldt Green North Tukvar (Greenleaf) is a fine example of just such a green tea, which you can buy online right now. This comes from one the best-known tea gardens in Darjeeling, and has a taste that is by turns fruity, tart and curiously complex.
To keep expanding your tea-drinking horizons, try a different variety of green tea from the norm. And who knows? You may just discover a new favourite.
