The company will launch five loose-leaf teas tea blends including Blackberry Jasmine Green, Watermelon Black, Passionfruit Black, Strawberry Herbal and Mango Herbal.

Our continuous innovation helps deliver the best solutions for producing the quality and taste of each individual brand," added James.
