Tea is part and parcel of Chinese culture, the tea-ritual going back to time immemorial. FOCLY is an authentic ambassador of this tradition. Each year Suyfat LU visits different plantations in China and Taiwan for the Spring or Autumn harvests to select the best teas, and some for which FOCLY has established an exclusivity.
