The Positive Living Community Farm has been cultivating the Misai Kucing Tea and processing it for the last 15 years. We have been selling the tea to a group of regular buyers who appreciate the quality of our tea. This is because :
tea is 100% organically farmed using the EM (effective microorganism) technology.
- Our tea is air dried which enables the tea to maximize the retention of the various trace elements in the tea, ensure the best aroma and colour and most all ensures
a smooth and tasty tea.
- Our packaging consists of 100% pure leaves which are completely visible through the zip lock bags.
On the 23rd October 2016 we launched our new packaging which matches the quality of our
tea and opens up a great potential for its effective marketing. This was made possible by Dr. Rajiv Bhanot who sought the assistance of the Taylors University Marketing Dept. Which generously came up with this attractive packaging design. With the increase
in demand, the home now has to find ways and means to expand the cultivation and processing facilities it's cultivated and produced by our residents.
