Heritage of Mei Shang Tang, “Tea Soap”
In the early stages, we added Bilochun green tea, produced in Sanxia, to the production of the soaps. These were surprisingly popular and made us determined to dedicate more to the market of soap .
“Tea Soap” was produced as a unique floating soap, and follows the traditional manufacturing processes. It is extracted from natural herbs and combined with these herbs to become a natural and pure handmade soap, free from any chemicals. The unique aroma of the soaps is fresh and pleasant, and after using it, your skin will be moisturized without feeling tight or dry. All the dirt and oil will be cleaned and completely washed away from your skin.
Tea Soap is made carefully and we’re trying carefully to make the memories and feeling of the people about the past clearer. We’d like to use our hands to embrace the warmth of the land and echo the passions of the people.
Tea Soap preserves the spirit of “sincere, honest, plain, simple”, starting from one piece of soap and progressing along the road to making soaps step by step. We’ve been walking the road for 60 years and witnessed the history of the soap business and how it has developed in Taiwan. The third generation of Mei Shang Tang have inherited and been taught the techniques of making handmade soap to offer a healthier option to modern people who are surrounded by the latest technology and all kinds of pollution.
Tea Soap has produced soaps for more than half a century. Being natural is a basic standard just as honesty and conscience are the core beliefs of Tea Soap. It’s the “credit mark” interpreted by the name used by the people. Tea Soap uses “soap” to deliver the strong message of being kind to our bodies and treating the land well.
