If asked, ''how do you take your tea?' i reply, "seriously, very seriously."
We're old souls who love to seek new flavors. Every cup is an adventure and a challenge, a bridge between past, present, and future. We’re inspired to rediscover our great-grandmothers' ingredients in our teas, even as we dream up ways to reimagine them. We never say no to another helping, another taste, another cup. We can't stop talking about the food and drinks we love, and we love it all. Here at Tarani Tea, we're bringing you the best of our finds from the earth and sea.
Just as there are thousands of leaves in a single cup of tea, Tarani Tea is a blend of our pasts, preferences, palates, and passions to form a brand that’s more than just a company. We want you to experience our favorite tea leaves, along with a new line of seaweed products that's coming soon, in a way that infuses the pace of modern life with the tranquility of tradition.
We started with the simple goal of making the world's oldest ingredients more accessible and fun. Welcome to Tarani Tea.
We are friends and family brought together by that mysterious force of "tea-energy" that unites tea lovers everywhere. The first among us had the idea of selling a couple of teas we all enjoy, the second became interested, the third became enthusiastic, the fourth became obsessed, and the fifth was forced to join.
Our jack-of-all-trades captain guiding Tarani Tea safely through the rough seas of managing interesting content, AL is our sharpest yet most beloved critic. If AL likes something, that means you're gonna love it! Favorite teas tend to be smoky or fruity, with wintermelon-based bubble tea stealing AL's heart and dollars as of late.
Christina is responsible for the terrible puns in our posts. One day she will perfect a cup of matchamericano without getting foam everywhere, but that day is not today. She also has a small, secret love for Lipton black tea, for sentimental reasons.
Andrew is behind the camera, complaining about the light yet always managing to capture that elusive, perfect shot. Though we tease him about his endless musings on Godard and film photography, his work speaks for itself. A warm cup of our dark hojicha blend is his go-to after pulling all-nighters on the job.
A lifelong graphic designer who loves a hot cup of tea, Jiwon is also the mom of two boys who love swimming and making hojicha lattes. She takes her tea time during practice while her sons dream of joining the Olympics. Our resident super mom, Jiwon helps make Andrew's photos a perfect fit for our site and social media pages.
Just like no performance would be possible without the behind-the-scenes crew, Tarani Tea would not exist without insight of Essie. She can be found browsing tea cafes and dreaming up delicious new tea-infused recipes. Though she is the queen who seeded the idea of sharing the goodness of tea, she leads by example and gets her hands dirty, inspiring us to keep moving forward. Her favorites are matcha shot and coldbrew Dark Hojicha with a drop of rum.
