Best Chinese Tea For Your Shop

Cha is chinese for tea and there are so many varieties of Chinese tea in the market.  If you don’t have a native Mandarin and Cantonese speaking tongue, you might not be even aware two teas were actually the same only given different names.

It is easy to get overwhelmed when choosing what you want as part of your tea line.

To make it a bit easier, we have chosen our 5 best Chinese tea that we recommend based on our experience of selling tea online since 2003 as well as feedback of retail customers, and partners of restaurant and cafe owners.

Iced tea


iced-lemon-tea2Q: I am not a fan of hot tea, but I really enjoy iced tea. Could you please recommend some teas which are ideally suited for making iced tea? Do you have any teas that are specially blended for iced tea? Thanks.

A: Thank you for your email. Essentially any tea can be made into an iced tea. It is a matter of personal preference to you like iced.

Generally speaking, most people prefer fruitier tea for iced tea, so Berry Fairy, Amore, Strawberry cream are pretty nice choices. Black tea – Lemon n Lime, Citrus Amber; green tea – Aussie Green, Green tea with Jasmine, Hula Girl are some other choices.

If you are more keen of the kind of “southern US” kind of iced tea, then any plain black tea can do the trick, but I would recommend Ceylon Classic OP for its clarity and aroma, or lower tannin Chinese blacks such as Keemun and Lychee Red black tea.

Hope there is some “food” for thought there for you 🙂
