Beautiful Taiwan Tea Co. really started with an innocent sip of an excellent Taiwanese High Mountain Oolong while I was living at the base of Alishan Mountain in Central Taiwan. That eye-opening experience turned into a life-time passion for me. I went to Chinese language school, finished university and in 2011 opened a farm-direct, premium-quality online tea store.
From the beginning, I wanted to do things the right way... I physically curate some of the best teas in the world directly from the human beings who grow them. I call this Face to Farmer™ Sourcing. This means better tea for YOU, better treatment of our EARTH, and better lives for FARMERS dedicated to their craft. I assure you that the tea you buy here is authentic. You'll also be glad to know that I have first hand knowledge that our teas are grown in PRISTINE areas, soaking up the best of what nature has to offer; the sun, the soil, the zen-like mist and the overall environment it comes from. Every year, I spend about 1 month out of 12 directly in the field meeting with our farmers and continuing the never-ending "Quest for the World's Best Teas" in Taiwan, China and anywhere amazing teas can be found. We hope you'll love our teas and share them with your friends!
You may be interested to know that we work from two bases: Taichung, Taiwan and Zionsville, Indiana in the USA. Every season, we acquire our teas directly from our farmer friends in Taiwan and send them to you from our modest warehouse in Indiana insuring you quick delivery times!
So please look around, every genre has something to offer. Whether its White Tea, Green Tea, Oolong Tea, Black Tea or Pu-erh Tea we promise interesting choices you're sure to love!
