  • TeaVivre response:

  • Eldry :


    Hi there,

    Are there actually substances of Orchid in the ShuCheng Lan Hua?


  • TeaVivre response:


    Thank you for your inquiry, the name “ShuCheng Lan Hua” does not mean that people put flowers or any substance of Orchid inside tea leaves to strength its aroma. There are two versions of meanings about its name:
    1. The shape of young tea tips linked to its branch like an orchid.
    2. When the orchid flowers are in bloom, people begin to harvest them, so the tea leaves usually have the fragrance of orchids.
    Hope this can be helpful for your concern.

  • aimee :

  • Lyn :


    I received this tea: Tian Yi, and cannot locate what type of tea it is from any list thus far. The labeling is entirely in Chinese and I am unable to read it. I would appreciate any information you would be able to provide.
    thanks so much

  • TeaVivre response:


    Hi Lyn, Tian Yi Tea is the brand of a tea company, not the tea's name. If possible, you can take some pictures of the tea's package (both front and back), and send to us: support@teavivre.com. We will try out best to find the tea for you.

  • Jocelyn :


    I received Taiwan Da Ye Lin Tea from a friend but I can't find its exact equivalent name in the list. There is no information written in English on its packaging. Can you at least confirm if is safe to take. Thank you!

  • TeaVivre response:


    Hi Jocelyn, the Taiwan Da Ye Lin Tea you mentioned seems to be the same with Taiwan Da Yu Ling Tea, which is a kind of high mountain oolong tea. In chinese it is named as 大禹陵茶. It should be safe to take if the tea you received is from standard tea manufactuer.
