First established in 2009, The Tea Culture Company has taken pride in providing the most delicious and fragrant Japanese and Chinese teas in Kuwait at the most competitive prices. With tea leaves imported directly from the two countries, the company upholds its mission to cater to a wide range of tastes with its selection of teas from most major tea families.
Passion and life
The Tea Culture Company believes that tea is a passion, a miracle of nature that soothes, opens the mind and makes one discover about oneself and the world. With their firm belief that tea should not just be a medicine or healing beverage, they aim to make tea part of the drinker’s daily life, providing quality nourishment and enjoyment.
It is easy to see their commitment to the tea culture through their official website, where information ranging from classes of teas to characteristics and preparation tips are available to help readers brew the perfect pot of tea. Recommendations for specific teas are also listed by season, based on the weather and availability of tea leaves, together with benefits provided by each type of tea.
The Tea Culture Company offers the best quality tea leaves from most tea families. For Chinese tea, the selection includes Green Tea, White Tea, Oolong Tea, Red Tea, Scented Tea, and Puer Tea. Scented Tea includes Royal Jasmine, Jasmine Pearls and Chrysanthemum Teas. The Jasmine selection features Royal Jasmine, a mix of green tea leaves with fresh jasmine petals, and Jasmine Pearls, the same tea crafted by hand into little pearls that unfurl when brewed to release their flavor. The Puer Tea leaves are imported from China’s Yunnan Province, the origin of the world’s first tea trees. Said to lower blood cholesterol, enhance circulation and aid in digestion and detoxification, it is a unique blend and rare treat.
The Japanese selection includes Sencha, Gyokuro, Hoji Cha, Genmaicha and Matcha Tea Powder. Gyokuro boasts anti-fatigue properties with its rich amino acid content, derived through shielding the tea bushes from direct sunlight weeks prior to picking. With a sweet and mild taste, it is a favorite amongst tea lovers. Hoji Cha, pan-roasted sencha leaves with a pleasant aroma, is good for those with a delicate constitution, since it contains less caffeine and tannin. Matcha Tea Powder, renowned for its used in Japanese desserts and confections, is a powdered tea that brews into a thick, foamy, deep green beverage.
