Hi, I’m Tae, and welcome to Tea With Tae (aka TWT)! I love tea and am passionate about delicious tasting tea. Tea is good for your health, good for your mind, and good for your soul. But beyond the great tastes and obvious health benefits, tea is special because it brings people together and makes people happy. It's no wonder that tea is the second most popular drink in the world after water!
Tea has deep historical and cultural roots, especially as a platform for social events, business meetings, and family gatherings. From 12th and 13th century Japanese tea ceremonies to 19th century British afternoon tea, tea has always been associated with interesting conversation and spending time with friends and loved ones. In recent times, however, many of our wonderful tea shops have closed down, and tea has lost a lot of its social charm. I want to bring it back.
Tea brings people together and makes people happy -- especially when someone is receiving tea as a gift. Our focus at TWT is to not only produce delicious and accessible tea blends, but also present our tea in beautiful packaging that can be given as a gift to your friends, family, and loved ones. That's why we created the Tea Bento Box. When words fall short or when you can't see someone in person, a gift can fill that void, and we want to help fill that void at TWT. Beyond gifts, our Tea Bento Box can be a centerpiece for a family event or a tea party with friends. Because the Tea Bento Box allows you to pick up to six different tea blends, each person will surely find a tea they enjoy!
Regarding our tea and packaging, all of our teas are premium, high-quality teas sourced from some of the most exquisite and finest tea farms in the world. Plus, they are served up in tea pyramid sachets, where our tea sachets are adapted to the tea, rather than adapting the tea to the teabag by jamming in flat-tasting tiny, leaves into small teabags. By serving our tea in our plus-size eco-friendly tea sachets (our tea bags are bio-degradable & plastic-free), we are preserving the sophisticated flavor profiles and aromas of each tea, while maintaining the convenience of a tea bag. It's the best of both worlds, especially for those who are constantly on the move everyday.
I'll leave you with this: life really is like a cup of tea – to be filled to the brim and enjoyed with friends, family, and loved ones (and Tae!). This is what Tea With Tae is all about - bringing people together one cup a time. We are excited to join you on your tea-drinking journey, and we hope you enjoy our teas as much as we do!
