The journey of UNCLE TEA begins with our childhood stories narrated by our UNCLE who is a devoted tea drinker. Stories of tea that originated from the magical legends about the Chinese Emperor to what the Indians believed that tea emanated from the Buddhist temples and the Goddess of Mercy who presented tea as a gift to devout farmers.
One thing that remained common and accompanied every fascinating tea tale was his perfect cup of tea that he never failed to boast about.
Our Uncle always said, “No matter how expensive the tea, if brewed wrong, it’s just awful.”
With his passion for tea and exceptional brewing skills came the inspiration for Uncle Tea as steeping tea was an art that our Uncle taught with immense love and precision.
Although tea was discovered roughly 5,000 years ago, it is still one of the most relished beverages worldwide and is considered as a local stipulation anywhere you go.
Tea diversifies within each culture and each culture has a unique identity for tea like the Taiwanese Pouchong, the Japanese Matcha or even the black tea flavoured by each to create their very own refined cup of tea.
Tea is truly magical and possesses a unique and powerful quality in not only flavour but in uniting cultures and people where just sharing a cup of tea dissolves all barriers set aside by the differences of cultures.
Uncle Tea believes that ANY TIME IS TEA TIME and EVERY TEA HAS A STORY TO TELL.
EVERY CUP IS A FRESH BEGINNING AND A CHERISHED MEMORY.
ANY TIME IS TEA TIME and EVERY TEA HAS A STORY TO TELL.
