GAIWAN story


After several years of travels and living in different cultures, we learned that what matters the most to us is relationships and enjoying time with the people we love. Tea became a wonderful, tasty, and healthy vehicle to facilitate this time and we strive to create an environment which does just that.

the inspiration

We have started this business out of a need in our beautiful part of the country where tea lovers like us have very limited access to fine organic and natural loose leaf teas. Our goal is to research, discover and present you with high quality, single origin and organic tea leaves whenever possible. There are hundreds of different kinds of teas and herbal infusions to choose from. We would like to help our customers discover the perfect cup of tea to start their day full of healthy energy, then provide them with a little burst of motivation throughout the day, and finally, to finish with a quiet, peaceful cup at the day’s end. We’ve made it our mission to taste and find many teas which are pleasing to the palate and grown in a healthy and natural way; teas that we ourselves would share daily with our children, family and friends. It has been a wonderful journey of learning and discovery as we’ve found a wide cultural diversity and a personal, unique world of tea.

join us on this journey

In today’s crazy, hectic world dominated by to-do lists, deadlines, constant noise and sometimes chaos, let us commit some time to relax our minds and bodies daily. Let us find a few minutes to close our eyes, take a deep breath, and inhale the wonderful aroma of a freshly steeped cup of tea. Reflect on all the positive aspects of our life, clear the clutter that is dragging us down, and reconnect with what is most important to us.

we’re excited to see you

Here at the Gaiwan Tea House we have created a unique, tranquil environment to facilitate time of daily decompression. Tea is a unique experience in many of the world’s different cultures and it is also very personal. Our knowledgeable and attentive staff will help you find the tea that will serve to accomplish this purpose. We are always glad to help, answer any questions you may have, and most importantly, take you on a journey to help find your favorite cup of tea.
