Our Tea Tree
Chatime’s tea is famed in the central mountains of Taiwan’s Nantou County. Tea trees are grown symmetrically on the hills and irrigated with natural rainwater. The hill slopes allow rainfall to be evenly distributed across the entire tea terrace, while also slanting direct sunlight away from the trees — this prevents the tea leaves from becoming overexposed to the sun, which can lead to a bland taste. Significant day-night temperature differences in the area also help to produce the best quality and yield of tea leaves.
