Our mission at High Climate Tea is to provide a variety of the freshest traditional Chinese teas available and educate customers about the art of tea - not just its esoteric enjoyments, but most importantly, an understanding of the many health benefits tea can provide.
Formerly an English teacher, my life was changed forever when I started training under the notorious Uncle Gee and Ming Duong at Vital Tea Leaf in San Francisco's Chinatown. Since then, tea has become my passion and life's work. I now travel to China with them every year to source tea and carry on their tradition of teaching people how to balance their health naturally through tea.


To us, quality matters. That's why we source our teas directly from traditional farmers and producers who live throughout China and Taiwan. We acquire our teas and wares through a community of artisans whose relationships have been built over the years. Every year we travel extensively through China searching for the freshest, most impressive teas from each harvest. 

Our mission is to provide our customers with excellent quality, naturally grown tea. We go through the trouble of seeking out the purest stuff on the face of the planet for the benefit of your health. So here you go, my friend. Have a cup of tea!
