Top 5 Tenren Tea Recommendations! 913 Tea King?


Which Taiwanese tea brand comes to mind? Although bubble tea shops can be seen everywhere in Taiwan, the only Taiwanese tea brand that has been established with more than 60 years of expertise is Tenren Tea. Li Ruihe, President of Tenren Group, was born in Mingjian Township, Nantou County, a famous tea-producing area in Taiwan. Since childhood, he had been raised surrounded by his father’s tea garden, and inevitably became a tea shop owner-operator in Kaohsiung. Cooperating with large foreign brands to expand the local market, this is a tea brand that can be said to have returned to Taiwan from high-quality cultivation overseas.

Top 4. Da ke Latte

Da ke Latte is Tenren Tea’s unique Tieguanyin latte. Heavily roasted oolong tea is carefully selected and paired with Fresh Milk Factory’s A-grade fresh milk, which can be said to be a perfect match. Both iced and warm options are very tasty and clearly demonstrate the premiumness of Tenren Tea.
