ToDoTea is the portmanteau of Tony and Doris, the Heart and Soul of the family operation, where Doris brings her life-long expertise in Taiwan teas, and Tony helps out with whatever to make her look good.
Everything started nearly 100 years ago, in 1928, when Doris' great grandfather, Master Lee, was recognised as one of the top Oolong tea experts in Nantou, Taiwan.
It has been a family business ever since.
The certificate awarded to Master Lee as a top Oolong expert.
Though the certificate has faded along with memories of our ancestors, the love of Taiwan Oolong tea lives on.
Fast forward 70 years, as the youngest daughter of the 4th generation tea family, I have been involved in Oolong tea for as long as I could remember.
After school, I would keep my dad company while we drove to hilly tea farms around Taiwan to find the freshest harvest of the season, before helping my mum cook up a storm in the kitchen to feed hungry workers in our factory.
The tea culture that runs in our family is passed down through generations in the chores that we do, the tea tasting sessions, and gossip around the tea set.
My knowledge in Oolong tea is closely tied to the loving memories with my family.
Now that I have a family of my own, I want to create new memories with Tony by sharing creative, healthy recipes that add Oolong tea to everyone's drinking routine.
The ToDoTea family.
I didn't know much about tea before I met Doris.
But step by step, sip by sip, Doris introduced me to the famous golden brew of Oolong.
I see her passion in the way she hand-stuff her own tea bags just right, to make sure the leaves have enough room to unfurl in a cold brew.
And the way she warms the tea set with hot water by rinsing the tea leaves first, then decant the hot brew in separate cups to preserve the flavour.
We are combining Doris' knowledge in tea with her love of cooking, to experiment with new flavours.
I want to help Doris realise her dream of introducing more people to the benefits of Taiwan teas, and show you ways to make tea drinking a part of a healthier lifestyle.

What Our Friends Say About ToDoTea
I brewed this milk oolong gong fu style 5g in 100mL. I did 6 brews (not including the rinse) and the aroma and flavor was still very good. This milk oolong has a muted buttery smell and slightly fruity taste. It's very delicious and I highly recommend it! The shipping was also pretty fast and thank you so much for adding extra free samples :)
Got a sample of this tea, and others. After all the samples were gone, this is one that I kept thinking about. Bold, not bitter, unique flavor through many gongfu infusions.
I was very satisfied with the taste of this oolong and the flavor lasted through several steepings. I would easily recommend this tea to a friend. I received this tea as a free sample and I plan on ordering more upon my next stock up. Thank you Tony and Doris.
brewed ~5g in 4 oz of water for 30, 45, then 60s.
Color: pretty clear golden yellow tea soup
Taste: not as in your face as the flavoured milk oolongs I have had before but good milk notes that last through brewings along the oolong backbone
Mouthfeel: relatively silky, pleasant
Aftertaste: sweet oolong notes with a bit of milkiness in the back of the throat
This Oriental Beauty is sweet and soothing. Absolutely perfect for a tea party with my girlfriends or when I'm by myself with a good book.
Refreshing like Oolong, and full of flavour like Black tea. Loving this unique tea from ToDoTea.
When sipping the light-lime tea brew, it's so smooth & good smell throughout the whole drinking. It tastes so different from the tea bags of western countries. I drink the High Mountain Oolong tea everyday now. Can't wait to try other product else of ToDoTea.
I really enjoyed the Milk Oolong I got from ToDoTea, it has a spectacular aroma, and excellent natural milky flavor. The taste linger in your mouth, makes you want to come back for more. I highly recommend the Taiwan Milk Oolong!
I have been a long time admirer of Taiwan Oolong teas, and the loose leaves from Shan Lin Xi are some of the best out there.
These guys do know Oolong!
After doing some research and trying sample Oolong teas from different stores, this is my favourite high mountain Oolong. I love the flexibility of loose leaf teas, that I can adjust the flavour just the way I like it. I drink two cups of Taiwan Oolong tea every single day.
High quality loose leaf teas that taste great without the guilt attached to it.
You know what I'm talking about!
This is the first product I bought from ToDoTea, and it totally exceeded my expectations!
Can't wait to try the Oolong teas.
