We referenced the color of a tea when it is infused at the international tasting standard (also known as the British Tasting Standard). In reality, different teas give a huge varieties of shades and tones. We have generalized the range with the eight colors above to make it easier for everyone. Please note that deviation from the infusion standard, water quality (for example, heavier mineral contents), and the storage condition of the tea have impact on the color.
This is for those who have some very basic understanding of the TCM warm-cool energy concept in things for ingestion. Please note that this indication is quite accurate only under normal consumption situation. Tea turned cold, cold-infused tea, or drinking in abnormal amount will in various degree affect the tea’s relative character. The TCM character to each selection is actually a lot more complicated than the realm of warm-cool definition. However, this is a good basis to start to choose a tea most suitable for the individual.
When we indicate a tea as a Tea Master’s Choice it means that our tea master Leo Kwan drinks the tea either all the time or quite frequently; when Staff Pick, the tea is most popularly internally. All of our products are price competitive for the quality, but some are extremely so; they are marked with the Great Value icon.
