Tea Excellence by Ronnefeldt

Why Ronnefeldt selects orthodox teas only?

Premium teas can only be produced by the orthodox, traditional method, since the special gentle hand-craftmanship of the orthodox method enhances the fine aroma of a tea. In contrast there are also entirely automated processing methods, such as the CTC process, during which the leaves are subjected to powerful mechanical forces. Compare for yourself.
