Why this business was started
At a tender age my grandfather, a passionate tea drinker, taught me to appreciate the heritage and rituals of authentic Chinese tea ceremony. Throughout the years, I began to cultivate a deep fascination for - and familiarize myself with - the diversity of teas that were produced in the different regions throughout China. But also fortunately, I was able to draw on more than thirty years experience of a family-run tea business, which is still based in Hong Kong.
When I first launched the business in Berlin, Germany, there was not an online purveyor that specifically focused on teas from China. Of course, there were multiple brands that offered a wide variety of different teas from India, Sri Lanka, Japan, Taiwan and China but there was not a definitive focus on premium Chinese teas. Therefore, upon setting up TEA PAVILION, I hoped to define the ultimate standard for Chinese teas in Germany, and this focus became our target market.

How to grow this business
When I first launched the business in Berlin, Germany, there was not an online purveyor that specifically focused on teas from China. Of course, there were multiple brands that offered a wide variety of different teas from India, Sri Lanka, Japan, Taiwan and China but there was not a definitive focus on premium Chinese teas. Therefore, upon setting up TEA PAVILION, I hoped to define the ultimate standard for Chinese teas in Germany, and this focus became our target market and growth potential.
Skills to have
My team and I travel extensively throughout China visiting tea gardens and plantations, where we work with each of them to improve the quality of the tea by ensuring that the production processes are as effective as possible.
Interestingly, a small number of our most popular teas are actually procured from several of the largest tea importers in Germany. The reason behind this is that, with strict EU regulations, tea imports are stringently checked (for example, for high levels of pesticides in the tea). Therefore, having a wholesaler whose sole responsibility is to provide quality control on our behalf ensures that we provide our customers with the highest quality teas at competitive prices.
