Wild & Bare Co.

Our goal is to pour the world's finest teas into the cups of tea lovers everywhere.

This quest first began when three Chinese tea masters and I traveled the mountains of China's Yunnan province and the high-elevation tea region of Taiwan. During our journeys, we were enchanted by the dramatic vistas that greeted us each day and the lovely people who welcomed us with their teas. The teas we sipped were truly exquisite, offering blends of novel flavors and aromatic fragrances that delighted our senses. On this website, we share our discoveries with you.

During our travels, we also came across rare handcrafted tea accessories. We've taken advantage of this serendipity and are encouraging local craftsmen to produce these fine items in greater supply for global sale. By increasing exposure to the works of these rural Chinese people, we can open the way for the world to support their craftsmanship. A selection of these distinctive pieces is featured here on our website.

Of course, our quest for superior tea is far from over. We continue to walk across rough terrain to confirm rumors, tips and legends about exquisite teas. We continue trekking to mountain tops and valley tea estates to shake the skillful hands of those who harvest and produce incomparable teas. And we will continue to share these treasures with you, our fellow tea lovers, so that you might join us in savoring them.
