Press Release: Family Owned Tea Garden Rethinks Tea Business Model

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 1, 2012) – Today, Mountain Tea launched as a new tea retailer, introducing its line of high mountain oolong tea.  As a pure ecommerce brand and retailer, Mountain Tea delivers premium tea directly to customers without the markup of retail prices.

The company is founded by Chicco Chou who is inspired to provide high end teas at a reasonable price to the American market.


Investing in Quality

Mountain Tea is rethinking the tea industry, eliminating unnecessary costs associated with traditional retail and investing in the highest quality packaging in order to keep its products fresher, longer.

“Teas main enemies are light, air, and moisture.  Teas stored loosely in a metal tin or in a sealed bag are still in contact with air and are constantly degrading in quality.  All of our products are vacuum sealed to ensure freshness for a minimum of 2 years.  We’ve also switched from tea tins and invested in lightweight boxes to reduce our footprint during shipping.  We go to great lengths to maintain high standards for all our products while also working to be more sustainable and eco-friendly,” says Chicco.
