How It Started
Welcome to Origins Tea! We believe that tea is an important aspect of life. Next to water, tea is the second most popular drink in the world. The best tea comes from the best tea leaves - so let us make a cup for you! We strive to find the best loose leaf teas from Taiwan. 500 different premium teas were brewed, tasted then brewed and tasted again to narrow down to only a handful of the best teas. Tea connoisseurs from around North America and China were used in selecting these highly prized teas.
All teas come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. It is the processing that creates the different varieties of white, green, oolong or black teas. Minute details from master tea makers create an immense difference in aroma, mouth feel and taste.
Origins Tea started because we kept looking for a tea shop that would offer the best natural teas at a good price. Instead what we found were poor quality teas at inflated prices or unnaturally flavored teas that promised to be healthy, however were anything but. On the occasions we did find great teas - they were quite expensive. Our priority is to offer the best teas available, and not to sell lesser teas just to make a profit. We knew others would feel the same.
So why did we chose tea? It's healthy, delicious, fun and shareable. Above all, because we love tea.
