What does "TF" mean?

Hi tea fans. I’m kind of new to pu-erh and I’ve ordered a few things from Chawang Shop and Yunnan Sourcing. I’ve noticed that several pu-erh teas are labeled “TF”. What does that mean? I’m sure it doesn’t mean true/false . . . :-)

Yeah, that makes sense. Thanks!

It actually means recipe made for Taiwan.

Cwyn, isn’t that “FT”?

Actually Fei Tai is Xiaguans biggest importer in Taiwan. Special blends originally for that customer and market.

Oh I see, Chawangshop was just abbreviating. I wonder if it’s deliberate to get it into search results.

No you are right Cwyn. It is the export line of XG. Translation has a bunch to do with it.

Interesting. It’s a great way to reduce often overly long product titles.
