On today's show, I have Diana Zheng one-half of the founders of Three Gems Tea based in Los Angles.
Ayumi and Diana started Three Gems Tea to make tea breaks easy and wanted to create something but keep it good, simple, and fun by sourcing delicious loose leaf teas from family farms and designing teaware with a pop to brighten your table.
Their teas are grown in China and Taiwan, on family farms that use holistic growing practices and forgo pesticides. The teaware that they provide is handcrafted by a small studio of artisans in Jingdezhen, the history-steeped ceramics capital of China.
Whenever the ladies returned to China, they loved the unfussy way that families drank tea together — low-key gatherings that inspired them both to share the magic of a casual tea break with the rest of the world, and with great design too.
At present Three Gems tea is launching a series of botanical herbal teas, a project collaboration with Windrose farm based in California. The new packaging has been designed to be fully eco-friendly and biodegradable.
