The weather and landscapes in Taiwan make it a suitable place for cultivating tea trees of top quality. But it's not until the 19th century when an English businessman John Dodd discovered the amazing Oolong tea in Taiwan did the tea business begin to bloom and become famous in the world as "Formosa Tea."


In Formosa Tea, players are tea farm owners who strive to harvest the best tea leaves, improve their tea processing techniques, and produce tea of the highest quality for not only the domestic market but also the international demands. With the unique worker placement and worker advancement mechanics, along with the tea dehydration and scenting processing, players must use their workers wisely to make the best tea in the market.
