Lei Cha is a traditional tea for the Hakka people. It is a powder made from grinding tea leafs, sesames and peanuts along with many ingredients in a special pottery bowl and is made into a drink after adding either cold or hot water.  Known for being thrifty, Hakka people always help each other out on their works in the farms; finding ways to maximize their resources, they utilize all kinds of grains and Taiwan’s tea leafs when treating their friends drinks.  With its rich nutrients, Lei Cha is good for quenching thirst, using as meal supplement as well as maintaining a healthy diet.  Experience Hakka tradition and its special tea culture.
