Our story begins with a few friends that share a love for single–origin oolong tea. It is a love built on Taiwanese tea traditions, which has evolved into a commitment to sharing the best tea and kombucha possible with the world.
Allan grew up between Los Angeles and Chiayi, Taiwan, where his family has been for several generations. Some of his favorite memories of Taiwan are of traditional tea time with his family. Thus, with every trip to Taiwan, Allan would always come back bearing gifts of oolong tea for his friends in LA. Allan has been friends with Chris for many years and was naturally excited to see Chris take an interest in brewing and experimenting with his tea.
Chris is always passionate about food. As chef and owner of Yang’s Kitchen in Alhambra, California, he is devoted to bringing the best ingredients, foods, and drinks to his customers. Chris began his restaurant career in 2012 at The Spice Table in Downtown Los Angeles and has also worked at several notable restaurants such as Cassia and Mori.
