Best teas are still inside China
One in every three cups of tea drank around the world is Chinese tea.
The irreplaceable factors
Fine teas actually seldom leave China
China produces the most teas in the world, about 1.2 billion kgs each year, but more than 90% of these teas are consumed within the country. With distribution channels controlled by large producers, international consumers often receive poor quality, mass produced teas.
We think everyone deserves a good cup of tea. That's why we're here.
Our mission is simple, yet important: Drinking Chinese teas make us feel alive, and we want to share them with the world. Our hometowns are actually in Yunnan and Fujian (2 of the largest tea lands). We do it by sourcing the most authentic and quality teas directly from them, plus other tea-producing areas in China. Since we understand the places and speak the dialects, we're able to find the finest Chinese teas, at the best possible price.
We've been great friends since college and we’ve built Borntea to reflect our belief and passion: company exists to make the world a better place.
