Next to the ”9-streets” of Amsterdam, there is a small hidden tea shop named Formocha. A tea shop that is well known for having pure and high-quality tea originated from countries like; China, Taiwan and Japan.


The reason why Formocha has establish this famed reputation is because, all the tea that you will find in this store are First Flush. First Flush is defined as the very first plucking of a tea plant’s harvest season. The new growth leaves plucked during First Flush are the youngest and most tender part of the tea plant and are said to yield the purest and freshest cup of tea that plant is capable of producing. Amazing right! But selling first flush only, comes with some downsides. The prices of the Formocha teas are high and because of the limited stock, your favourite tea might be sold out quite fast. But he, If that is what you have to deal with in order to experience something amazing, then sign us up for it! Be warned that after experiencing Formocha's tea, you might not want to settle for less anymore!
