The Formosan Tea Masters

The Formosan Tea Masters are made up of tea connoisseurs, former government officials, tea farmers, tea traders and tea executives who all share a common goal: to raise the profile of Formosan Teas to the international community. Formosan Tea is of great pride to the Formosan Tea Masters and the Taiwanese people.

The Formosan Tea Masters are honoured to be led by Master Lan a 40 year veteran of Formosan Tea’s governing body.

Master Lan is revered throughout Taiwan as the authority on Formosan teas. He played a key role in introducing best practices to both the Lugu and Shanlinxi tea growing regions, as well as implementing new standards and creating new teas. Master Lan is often called upon to partake in international tea-tasting competitions. Master Lan retired from his government duties in 2013 after 40 years’ public service and is now dedicated to putting Formosan teas on the international map.
