Our story


I started Tekuno out of a desire to make well-crafted teas a larger part of our everyday lives. Tekuno was born out of three formative experiences in my life:

  • growing up in my parents' small business, where its space and community was my second home;

  • spending my school years studying Japanese and the country's culture;

  • brewing exceptional Chinese and Taiwanese teas for Song Tea & Ceramics.

In an increasingly disparate and segregated world, Tekuno seeks to inspire meaningful human interactions and relationships—both with ourselves and with the Earth. We look forward to sharing our teas with you! 🌾
