Tea Professional / Tea Shop Owner
I am British born Chinese (Hong Kong)
currently living in town within the province of Cordóba in Argentina.
Tea has always been part of my cultures,
but it wasn’t until 2007 that my curiosity and passion for this beverage started
when I had the opportunity to work (weekends) with a startup family brand.
Little did I know I would eventually dedicate my career to tea in Argentina!
I am the owner of a small, independent tea shop
and a true believer in connecting tea professionals
by sharing experiences and knowledge.
As a tea buyer,
I feel it is my responsibility to have direct contacts
with the tea farmers in Argentina
and to provide honest information to my customers.
After all, it is also about the experience!
Tea Grower, Tea Wind
I am 4th and 3rd generation of Japanese tea producers in Argentina.
Kaeriyama family came to Misiones, Argentina in 1921 and produced “yerba-mate” until the family was able to bring some Camellia Sinensis seeds from Japan in 1936.
Now Kaeriyama family makes beautiful orthodox tea from Camellia Sinensis in Argentina.
Tea Wind represents 80 years of experience and wisdom in tea production.
I was raised in the tea plantations where I learned all about it.
