  • Since 2011, our specialty has been in the craft teas of Taiwan grown in fertile, mountainous areas on small family farms. Taiwanese tea grown by the right people in the right areas is some of the best tea on Earth!  

  • We proudly source our teas Face to Farmer™. When you buy your tea here, you directly support small family farms.  This insures that good people with keen aspirations innovate, grow and thrive.   

  • Recently, our farmer network has expanded to include hard-working people producing amazing teas in other areas including remote Yunnan, North Vietnam, Sri Lanka, etc... We offer them to you as Guest Teas. 

  • Supported by our sourcing base in Taichung, Taiwan our store is in Zionsville, IN so your teas will be shipped from the US, decreasing the wait and environmental toll of directly shipping individual orders from Asia - and if you spend just $25, we will ship your order FREE in the USA.

Beautiful Taiwan Tea Co. started in 1992 with an innocent sip of an excellent Alishan Oolong while I was living at the base of Alishan Mountain in Central Taiwan. That eye-opening experience turned into a life-time passion culminating with my decision to open my own tea store in 2012 in Zionsville, IN supported by our base in Taichung, Taiwan.    

Our passion is to physically curate outstanding teas directly from the human beings who grew them. We are thrilled to be one of the very few companies who truly practice Face to Farmer™ sourcing.  It's very difficult but we believe it results in better tea for YOU, better treatment for the ENVIRONMENT, and better lives for FARMERS dedicated to their craft.
Having lived in Taiwan for many years and frequently traveling back and forth we have made many tea friends.  Dear friends, tea experts and aficionados alike have been instrumental in helping us establish an exclusive network of the best farmers in Taiwan.     
As we grow, our vision is to continue to specialize in individually curated teas from Taiwan, but we will also offer many of the the best teas from all over the world.  As our network of farmers expands, we will find and support real people with real families who are doing GREAT work skilfully growing the best teas in pristine areas.  
We hope you'll love our teas and share them with your friends.  
On behalf of our farmers and BTTC, Thanks.
