About WEN TANG TEA CO.

The Teatalk Group (a WEN TANG TEA CO. brand) was founded in 2005 to keep the Tang family’s heritage in the tea business. Their tea plantation is situated on Chilai Mountain at an elevation of 1800 meters where their tea plants grow strong against the challenging elements and soil. Their tea is made from these magnificent tea plants and has the best memorable fragrance.

Teatalk Group insists on supplying safe, non-toxic fine Taiwanese tea for their customers. This is the mission of their company. In order to assure consumers a worry-freely, authentic high-mountain Oolong tea made in Taiwan (MIT), Teatalk Group has successfully achieved ROC's Council of Agriculture's certification which they renew each year. Their products have carried the TAP Label (Traceable Agricultural Product) since 2008. In addition, Teatalk production also passed the certifying process of Oolong tea carbon traceability and water traceability in 2016. Teatalk Group is the first company to obtain the certification for Oolong tea.

講茶想要透過茶知識教育,縮短消費者與生產者之間的資訊落差。在茶知識的推廣過程,發現如果要完成這一個使命,重要的是提高自己的能見度與影響力,透過申請B Corp的過程,讓講茶發現需要改善的面向,也期待因為獲得b型企業的認證,讓更多茶產業的公司重新定義企業成功要素。

The Change We Seek®

在世界三大飲品茶、酒、咖啡中,品飲人口最多的是茶,而茶葉的生產、製造與消費者這三方面的資訊一直以來都充滿了不對等,尤其對消費者而言,想要深入認識茶葉的生產、購買、品飲等所有資料並不容易,也無法分辨茶葉產品的來源,這會導致消費者降低茶葉需求,也會讓地區茶農的銷售產生瓶頸,因此講茶為了改善現況,期望透過茶知識的教學可以提升地區茶農的銷售能力與降低消費者選購或品飲茶葉的困難度。 講茶目前致力於以下幾個方向:

  • 建立一系列的茶葉知識教育系統:與台灣中興大學合作,在大學內部開設茶產業相關教育學程, 成立講茶學院,提供社會人士學習茶相關知識
  • 整合生產者,建立緊密的微組織,透過與其他台灣茶葉生產者的交流,建立集體影響力
  • 研究烏龍茶-老茶存放與轉化的影響因子並分析可用數據,以建立台灣老茶評鑑與販賣系統。
  • 積極尋找茶產業與其他行業的跨界整合:茶與餐飲、茶與器具、茶與家俱、茶與空間的合作
  • 利用茶葉販賣的收入,免費提供偏鄉地區茶農或地區學校學生的茶知識教學。
