During a journey to the south, Hakkas traveled thousands of miles, crossing mountains, and rivers, experienced lots of hardships. They needed to start from scratch, and gradually developed a tough, hardworking, outward-looking, and adventurous character.

It is this character that gave Hakkas the motive to search for a new world tirelessly.

There is something common between Lei tea and the Hakka spirit. Lei Tea is taken from mountains, cooked in a journey, reflecting the sun, moon, stars, wind, frost, rain, and snow. It tastes elegant and leisurely, reflecting thick and bold.
