In the island nation of Taiwan, nature’s produce grows abundantly through the simple efforts and honest work of its people.
Amidst the backdrop of that beautiful and fertile land, during the Japanese occupation, a young woman named Chen Jian (nicknamed “Yi Fang”) married a farmer who worked in a pineapple plantation. Day in and day out, he toiled in extremely hot weather. She worried that the intense heat would be harmful to his health.
Gathering overripe pineapples, Yi Fang boiled and turned them into a preserved pineapple jelly sauce. She mixed the sauce with water and served it to her husband. In an inspired move, she also added the pineapple jelly sauce to tea to make a refreshing and thirst-quenching drink for him.
The fragrant fruit tea you now hold in your hand is created with the same delicious recipe that Yi Fang prepared for her husband. Every drink uses only the freshest of fruits in season and is still made with as much love and care.
Yi Fang Taiwan Fruit Tea opened its first branch in Tai Chung, Taiwan and has steadily expanded all over the country. It also set up shop in China and is now in the Philippines.
