Xian Tea is founded by Dorina and Gregor: We both discovered our passion for tea during our time living in China and working in a tea shop. Together we discussed on how to share our passion with more people and make tea accessible. In 2017 Gregor decided to go again to China and Taiwan to explore tea farms. With our network of tea farmers and producers Dorina and Gregor started Xian Tea in July 2018. We setup Xian Tea from the beginning with a focus on tea directly from the source, Gregor works with the farmers, Dorina’s passion is taste – she controls the selection. Together we find only hand-processed, single origin tea for you.
Our company was founded out of our passion for tea and out of own capital. We believe that more good and sustainable grown tea should be available in Europe. That is also why we founded Xian Tea in a way, that all profit will be re-invested to promote more positive tea culture, e.g. through events, collaborations with brands, better tea or helping micro-farmers accessing the European market. We want to change to way we consume tea and offer high quality beyond a label.
Xian Tea (“Tea is the answer”) comes from the Chinese Character 閒 – a traditional Chinese character that symbolizes tranquility and peace. The character contains the word door (Men 門) and moon (Yue 月) – the moon shining through a door. We feel this this symbolizes the tranquility of drinking tea.
