I never liked tea all that much. Quite to the contrary actually, I tried to stay away from the stuff and that worked out quite well until I went to Formocha and tasted the teas that Amanda has on offer. From that point on I was sold. I studied tea, bought the right kit and started tasting teas all over the world. My wife and I visited a very famous teashop in Paris, we shopped in Singapore, we went to China and to Taiwan, but after all this tasting and testing Amanda's Alishan and her Dung Ding remain our favourites.
Amanda is very helpful and knowledgeable and will tell you all you need to know about the proper preparation, which teas get better over time and which ones are short lived. In short: the perfect one stop shop for those who like quality and service.
Please note: Formocha only sells the real stuff. If you want fruit tea, or other stuff that is not tea at all, go elsewhere. If you want the best teas Taiwan and China have to offer, this is your address.
