Tea was discovered in China a very long time ago. Since then, tea farming has spread to many countries in Asia and the rest of the world. China, Japan, India and Taiwan are some of the most celebrated tea-producing countries. This box contains four single-estate teas, all from growing regions in Asia. Each one has its unique flavour characteristics, which depend on the processing method (green tea, black tea, oolong) and the different mountains on which it grew.
