About Us

 

In a rapidly changing world, timelessness has become a rare virtue, and a seemingly impossible feat. In a world full of shortcuts and compromise, Denong Tea seeks out the timeless. Born on the mountains of Yunnan, ancient Pu-erh tea trees carry countless centuries worth of secrets and history. These ancient trees make up less than three percent of the tea trees in Yunnan Province, which is the only region in which these trees can thrive. The oldest of these trees is over 2,700 years old. It is our firm belief that the tea leaves from these trees makes the best Pu-erh in the world. It is timeless.
It’s this discovery of the timeless that gives us our purpose and our inspiration. We consider ourselves guardians of the world’s best Pu-erh, as gatekeepers to an ancient time and place. Every year, we journey hundreds of miles to the famous Pu-erh mountains to discover and rediscover the finest tea leaves in existence. When this tea is pressed into cakes or bricks, its story truly begins. Like a fine wine, good Pu-erh tea boasts an evolving composition and a flavor profile that’s always growing in quality and complexity. Whether you choose to enjoy our tea now or hold onto it and watch its value soar, we hope you’ll join Denong Tea in our quest for timelessness.

 


Our Journey

In 1998, Our parent company Denong Tea Company first started conducting tea-related trade in Yunnan Province, China. In 2005, they expanded and began manufacturing, storing, trading and auctioning Pu-erh tea. They were soon awarded numerous accolades after quickly earning the respect of both their customers and peers in the Pu-erh tea industry. After the company’s success in China, Denong Tea opened up additional branches in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
All throughout the world, the name Denong has come to represent an assurance of quality and dignity. Our own Denong Tea Inc. was established as its US branch in 2012, and was officially launched in March 2016. Since then, we’ve dedicated ourselves to sharing the miracle of Pu-erh with an American audience. We have opened our flagship store in Pasadena on 11/11/2017.
