The Passion Behind My Tea Store
Great Tea Road Co. is the product of my successful journey full of experiences. This results from my passionate drive to reach out to millions of people and care for their health through teas' tender and divine taste.
What Inspired the Name Great Tea Road Co.?
The name of my store was inspired by the historic Siberian route from where great quantities of tea are being transported from China to Europe. This route, known as the Tea Road, surfaces on the Moscow Highway. By choosing this name, I am sharing an uplifting journey of my passion and taste with my fellow tea lovers.
How Did My Love for Tea Start?
My profound and natural mania for sharing my love for tea with people helped me be still and attain the utmost serenity. And no, this is not just an occasional enthusiasm. As someone born in Thailand to a Chinese immigrant family, I have learned to associate tea with every meal and have followed that tradition. So now, it is my ritual to start my day with a cup of tea.
Discovering Teas From Various Places
My ability to speak different languages helped me a lot in traveling to many tea-producing countries, which do not even exclude the rural mountainous regions that nest small tea farms to discover high-quality teas from my communities. It also allowed me to exchange interests and gain more information by speaking to the native tea connoisseurs about teas’ reputation and benefits.
The Idea of
My Tea Products
The teas I offer in my store are natural. I have worked with many tea garden owners in various parts of China, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, and India. I have also sourced products directly from farms and delivered them to the US. To provide my customers with more flavorful, aromatic, pleasurable, and divine products, I blend all the teas I offer myself.
My entire product selection is handpicked. Sourced from the finest tea gardens, all the products I deliver are delicious to provide my customers with the best tea experience. My tea varieties range in all forms to offer every possible health benefit.
I value serving my customers by prioritizing the environment-friendly packaging of our products to keep the natural flavors of my products intact. Through this, I hope to bring organic teas everywhere and spread the culture and art of discovering a taste that lasts forever.

My Journey to Becoming a Tea Professional
The mighty has led me to survive for this passion for discovering nature’s loveliest tea gardens. My insights into an organic tea store helped me to begin my Japanese tea ceremony training with a tea master of Urasenke Tankokai Association. Through this, I became a certified tea professional. Today, I am a “Chado “(Japanese tea ceremony) practitioner and served as the VP of Yukimakai Urasenke of Minnesota.
Let Us Enjoy the Tea Journey
We are on a journey on the Great Tea Road together. I am excited to share the best teas I have discovered with you. Tea should calm your mind, soothe your body, and lift your spirit. I strive to provide organic teas and even locally blend them to bring healing sensations to you. So please share my passion and enjoy the fruits of my labor.
