Second Steep Story

Growing up in China, tea wasn’t just a drink I’d have on occasion -- it was integrated into my lifestyle. Tea gave me energy, and brought balance to my mind and body.

Unfortunately, teas sold in US supermarkets just weren’t the same quality. I had moved here to pursue a career in architecture, and found myself buying overly expensive teas in specialty shops to fuel my lifestyle.

Whenever I traveled to China, I’d peruse tea shops in my free time. It quickly became a hobby, and I’d discover new favorites to bring back and share with friends.

Seeing the opportunity to bring tea from China to the US, I left my architecture job and started building a career that I truly felt belonged to.
