At Innofarmer Tea we take great pride in our excellent quality, very tasty and wonderfully aromatic tea that we offer customers worldwide. We have had the absolute pleasure of sharing our tea with folks in Taiwan, Canada, the USA and countries throughout Europe. One very important characteristic of our company is that we focus on our knowledge and thorough understanding of each and every type of tea that we offer our customers.
While we don't offer a great number of teas like some other large-scale stores and boutiques, we take great pride in the fact that the teas on offer are studied and researched thoroughly. It would bring us great pain and anguish if a potential or current customer asked us a detailed question in which we either didn't have an answer to or, at best, a partial answer without the greatest of confidence.
So let's take you on a tour of the teas that we offer either through our online site or our growing list of marketplace shops throughout Toronto and beyond.
Oolong Tea (or Wulong Tea)
Our Oolong Teas, like most of our offerings, come from a small village in Taiwan called Ming Jian Village, Nantou. While this area is not considered to be "High Mountain", the quality and flavour of the tea is breathtaking.
Oolong Tea can offer a light, fresh taste - Chin Shin Oolong Tea - and a strong, roasted flavour - Dong Ding Oolong Tea. Dig a little deeper and you will discover a very beautiful Oolong that goes by the name of Red Beauty which has a distinct flavour similar to the Lychee fruit - sweet with a hint of sour notes.
Oolong Teas makes a wonderful addition to most light flavour meals and can also be enjoyed as a midday treat or a compliment to any dessert. Rolled tightly during the processing stage, when mixed with hot water and left to sit for a minute or two the leaves unfurl to release the very distinct Oolong Tea flavour. Online Store
The Black Tea leaf compliments most desserts and can also be enjoyed throughout the day. Add a dash of brown sugar or honey and you have a tea that stands above the rest. Our Black Tea is dried into long, flavourful leaves that open up emitting a wonderful smell that pulls you closer to the cup with each and every sip. Let the tea linger in your mouth an extra second or two to allow the full flavour - delicately sweet - to make it's presence felt.
Compliment this tea with a fresh salad or dark chocolate dessert and you will discover a very unique Black Tea very different from many found in China, India and even Taiwan. Online Store
Ginger & Brown Sugar Cider
Our Signature drink, Ginger & Brown Sugar Cider, has been a very big hit in Toronto and through other parts of North America. As the cool Fall months turn to the frigid Winter months, there are very few drinks that compare in taste, warmth and prevention than this gem of a cider.
Proven to prevent illness and sooth the worst of colds and flu, this delicious Cider offers a wonderfully spicy kick with fresh and plentiful ginger alongside the sweet flavour of brown sugar. Add a spoonful or two of milk/cream and you've got the perfect winter comforter.
PS. From November ~ February, I have at least one cup of G & BS Cider to help keep my body warm and to prevent any potential colds and other illnesses that try to make their way into my daily life. Online Store
Yesterday, we shared a special Tea Outhing No. 5 with our very good friends from Taichung City, Taiwan. Some familiar faces, and a few new ones, came out to our final Tea Outing in Taiwan before Innofarmer Organic Tea moves to Toronto, Canada. It was definitely an enjoyable afternoon filled with good conversation, laughable moments and, of course, some delicious tea.
I would like to thank those who came out yesterday and to those who came out to some or all of our Tea Outings No. 1 through 5. We look forward to sharing our excellent tasting and healthy variety of tea with friends from around the world.
Next stop: Toronto, Canada (which also includes the rest of North America and beyond!)
Growing up in Canada I had the pleasure of enjoying many warm, beautiful summers filled with bicycle rides, trips to the Canadian National Exhibition and more baseball games than a boy my age could imagine. Winters also included an endless number of outdoor activities that were both fun and exciting. To say the least, I enjoyed my childhood.
Most nights as a child I would prepare for sleep-time with a book, completing my homework and brushing my teeth in the interim, and also following my parents around the house as they also descended into their regular night time routines.
While my Mother rarely (if ever) drank a cup of tea before bed, I could always find my Father sipping away on a cup with Lipton or Red Rose. Don't get me wrong: I'm not going to write with a negative tone toward those two types of tea and their underlings. However, I will have to say something about the maturing process and the discovery of great tasting tea.
Now that I am a father and have discovered what I consider to be some top notch tea, I want my son to share in the wonderful experiences and feelings that good quality and great tasting tea can bring to a simple get-together of friends or just for yourself. Still, I don't want to share with JUST my son - - I want to share with the entire City of Toronto and beyond.
Beginning in August 2013 (the 5th to be exact!), Innofarmer Organic Tea - Canada will be bringing some of Taiwan's finest teas to the streets, parks, shops and just about anywhere else that folks like to sip on tea. We will be exploring various types and flavours of tea from month to month in parks and shops scattered throughout Toronto.
If you would like to join us on an afternoon in the park (we call them Tea Outings here in Taiwan) or would like to try this exclusive tea in the comforts of your own home, feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or check our FB Page for future scheduled events.
It's time to Tea Up - Up - and Away!
“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
