Excellent Quality Control and Examination System
All tea leaves and tea bags are manufactured in our own factories where drinks products meet standard quality control. Both ingredients and products go through the analysis of flavor/machinery and the testing of microorganisms/pesticide residues by factory’s side and company’s side. Moreover, we share information with our manufacturing factories and have regular quality control meetings with the factory representative in order to assure the safety procedure and liability of producing tea products.
