About Us

 Our Story

It all started with falling in love with the leaf. Founder and Owner, Christian Perez had a sample of loose leaf tea (Jasmine Green Tea Pearls w/ Peach) and was hooked on the complexities and undervalued art of this world-loved infusion. Inspired by the leaf, in 2013, he experimented in his kitchen mastering time and temperatures for whites, greens, oolongs and yellow tea as well as making herbal wellness blends for coaching clients and friends alike; Tesane Tea was born.

Tesane Tea Co. was then established in 2015, moving into the teaware and accessories space after noticing an industry-wide shortage of portable, steeping products. Today, it is the fastest-growing online purveyor of diverse, practical and sustainably-sourced teaware & tools for the conscious tea consumer. 

Founder and Owner, Christian D. Perez is a tea aficionado and connoisseur appreciating everything from the beauty of the ritual to the art of the flavor. Infusions and extractions were always of interest so after getting his degree in Nutritional Sciences he studied botanical and herbal medicine under world-renown ethnobotanist, David Winston, learning about tinctures, formulating blends and health benefits of plants. Tea naturally took a liking and became a hobby. Almost a decade as a healthcare professional, he is now pursuing a career in tea. Originally from New Jersey, he's settled in Fort Collins, CO to "steep" in the health-conscious culture and expand the Tesane brand. You can also find him representing the TeaLife lifestyle in his channel, TreesLeavesTea. For more info, click here.

"Tesane Tea Co. is my passion-baby since being introduced to tea! There's nothing like pulling out your favorite tea leaves to enjoy and having the perfect travel tool to steep them with. My goal is to share that pleasant experience and help you elevate yours." - Christian
