Our World of Tea


The World’s Great Tea Regions

At JING we focus our sourcing efforts on what we consider to be the best tea regions in the world. A large proportion of these are in South and East Asia, which subsumes countries and regions with hundreds if not thousands of years of history of producing the finest tea. China, as the home of tea, offers the widest variety of high quality tea anywhere in the world. Taiwan is rightly famous for producing predominantly fantastic Oolong teas and Black teas. Japan is home to unique Green teas. Sri Lanka and India are synonymous with rich black teas.
