2012 TOST - Visit Formosa Black Tea Co. (10/27/2012)
We are visiting Formosa Black Tea Company in Kuanshi, Hsinchu. This old tea factory used to manufacture tons of Taiwan Black Tea for export to more than 87 harbors in the World. The owners, Lo's Family, has upgraded the old tea factory to install a modern steam-fired green tea production line here, and still manages to preserve many of old sites and converted to be a very nice tea culture gallery. We like to bring our TOST members here to review the history of Taiwan tea industry, plus we also get to learn about the Micro Green Tea 300 that is currently processed here by FORTEACO with the ISO22000 approved facility.
