Press Release: Family Owned Tea Garden Rethinks Tea Business Model

Posted on March 08, 2013 by Mountain Tea

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.


About Mountain Tea

Mountain Tea got its start in 1987 as a family-owned grower and manufacturer of high-grown, loose-leaf oolong tea.  Mountain Tea owns and operates 3 gardens in Nantou, Taiwan (elev. 1500m), Fujian, China (elev 1400m), and Sumatra, Indonesia (elev 1200m).  The company is changing the standard for tea; in 2012, Mountain Tea expanded into the retail sector in order to provide a direct-to-consumer experience that offers the best quality oolong tea on the market, at a great value.  For more information, contact Mountain Tea at, by calling 562 412 3738, or write to Mountain Tea, 13017 Artesia Blvd D128 Cerritos CA 90703.
