When we wanted to offer a cup of tea to the world, we had been thinking, what characteristics should it have? Later, we found the answers from the characters of tea itself.
First, it should be natural, healthy with premium quality.
It means that it should be green from planting to processing. Therefore, the suppliers we have been working with are tea farmers and tea makers, so that we can ensure the source of each tea is clear for us and for our customers

We attach great importance to the growth environment of tea plants. Many of our teas come from officially certified organic tea gardens. Moreover, many of our raw materials come from ancient tea trees, which are old tea trees with more than 100 years of age (mainly in Yunnan, including Pu’er tea, black tea etc. ). Science shows that tea from ancient trees is richer in nutrients and more conducive to human health. In addition, we should ensure that the tea making process of our partners is reliable and stable.
Secondly, our tea should have a friendly price.
We are in the homeland of tea. We work with partners from the source – tea farmers and direct manufacturers. There is no middlemen. This not only facilitates us to control the quality and ensure the supply, but also provides a friendly price for our customers.
Third, it has a link with culture .
Tea is very comprehensive. It can be a way of life or go beyond life. If it is soluble in water, it is a beverage; Integration with flower arrangement is aesthetics; integration with poem is literature; Integration with Zen is religion. When we choose products, we also take these cultural factors into account. We understand what we are delivering is not only a drink, but also a culture, a lifestyle and a spiritual journey.
