Introducing 'Promote Sustainability - Get Great Tea' The Eco-Cha Indiegogo Campaign

October 24, 2014

We’re really happy to release this news. We’ve just launched an Indigogo campaign aimed at supporting the traditional, small-scale tea industry in Taiwan.

Mr. Lin went from a self-run local farm to large-scale tea cultivation, and is now returning to his family land to grow organic tea and cure it in his home factory.

The goal of this campaign is to purchase Mr. Lin’s inaugural harvest and make it available exclusively to the backers. We’ll also produce a video documentary on the entire process of setting up this farm, from inspection and certification to harvest and processing.

Please have a look at the video, which explains everything in detail, and has some great shots of tea making!

There are lots of different perks available from a sample of the tea all the way to a week long tour of Taiwan’s tea country.
