Single origin tea

Xian Tea is a tea start-up, based in Berlin and Taipeh. You can find our best single origin tea from Taiwanese and Chinese farmers in your coffee shops, yoga space, restaurant or shop! We also offers a small set of artisan teas to buy on this website. If you are interested have a look at our shop or find a place close to you with our tea or follow Xian Tea on Instagram. This is what we stand for:

Tea in the focus

From bush to cup

All our teas come from farms that we know. We never work with wholesale or other third parties – we buy only from farmers. Sometimes we do work with cooperatives of farmers. We want you to know where you tea is from, so next time when you are in China or Taiwan you could say hi and have a cup of tea with the farmer.

Real tea, real stories

We love tea and we want to give you a chance to taste some of the best teas. No need of overly fake descriptions of the types of flowers. Every tea we sell, we love because of its taste and origin. Its quality. What the tea means to you, you can find out by yourself (or together with your friends.)

Our planet in mind

Sustainable is a strong word. We know there are a lot of false claims out there, so we have to be honest – the tea you drink comes from the other side of the world. It will never be carbon-neutral. But that said – we try to reduce and reuse as much as possible. Xian Tea only works with farmers that farm as sustainable as possible.
