Tea has a history of being presented as a traditional product, because China has a long history of being a major exporter in the tea industry. However, this does not mean other countries of tea are not popular compared to China.

Japanese style prioritizes on “tea-steaming” to levitate green tea aroma, which decreases caffeine & boost the health benefits of tea.

What’s so special about cteagallery' Tea Sachets?
Our tea sachets are locally made in Hong Kong, no cotton strings are attached, and holding at least 5 grams of whole tea-leaf with ease. In the modern society, a lot of people prefer to gently put tea sachet in a variety of containers for both hot and cold brew tea, but hot water tend to melt strings’ fiber causing it to fall off and affecting the tea flavour. Thankfully, our products will not have this fiber issue, while can boost tea aroma.
