Company overview

**Our story**

 

Marulin is an independent London-based startup that directly sources our tea from our family farms in Taiwan and farming friends.  
 
Our teas have a Taiwanese tea base and are specially blended with a British twist.  We want to make Taiwanese tea accessible for you to enjoy, since Taiwanese tea is rare and usually expensive in Britain!

 



**Our History**


Marulin is a place where our family’s passion for tea has been handed down through generations of farmers in Taiwan.


The idea behind Marulin started four generations ago. Back in 1944, Mr. J.L. Lin inherited pineapple and tea farms in the village of Chuwei in Nantou County, Taiwan from his father.   During World War II, Mr. Lin traded pineapples and tea with the Japanese using a stamp with the symbol of Marulin. Throughout that time until the 1970s, everyone in the family farmed!

In 2016, Mr Lin’s granddaughter, Dr. Lin, decided to share the wonders of our teas with the rest of the world and started Marulin tea. Today, we still own the farms and have evolved to Marulin where the love of tea goes beyond our farms and beyond your cup.  

Since our launch:

- Our English Beauty tea was shortlisted for ‘Best Product from a Startup’ in the 2017 FreeFrom Food Awards.  This tea is a lighter, alternative breakfast tea that can be enjoyed without milk and sugar and is made with Oriental Beauty tea.
- Our teas are appearing in cafes and restaurants.
- Bakers, chefs and people at home have been using our teas as a tasty ingredient in their food creations.

We hope you enjoy our tea !

Description

Our teas are all sourced from our family farms in Taiwan and our friends from around the world. Our teas have an exotic Taiwanese tea base, which are blended with a British twist.

We offer four varieties in ‘tea tents’, which are larger-sized silken tea bags containing whole-leaf tea that can be brewed twice in normal sized mugs. You can enjoy our teas hot or cold. For a refreshing summer beverage or mixer, put one tea tent in a litre of still, sparkling or tonic water, and cold-brew in the refrigerator overnight.

Four Seasons Pearl Oolong – a version of oolong that is harvested year-round and is our house speciality. The tea leaves are rolled into pearls that expand into full leaves when brewed.

Empirical Oolong – part of a range of loose-leaf, single estate teas sourced directly in small quantities. Empirical Oolong is a rolled pearl oolong with light floral notes. This tea can be brewed multiple times (hot) or cold brewed for a refreshing summer beverage. Our farming neighbour in Nantou County, Taiwan hand-picks this tea and uses a battery-powered drone to monitor crop growth. Empirical Oolong comes in a reusable tea caddy (tin) and is a perfect gift for a tea lover.
