The founders in Kyoto tea fields

the people's tea 🌱

Sheer Tea was created with the modern-day wo/man in mind. We are a team of ordinary people aspiring to produce extraordinary, all-natural products for those that are building and guiding our way into the future. 🚀

We want to create products that address the needs of contemporary workers, which means they should stimulate without agitating, relax without causing drowsiness, and empower people for the road ahead. 🍵

The name “Sheer” is taken from Farsi, which means both milk and lion and was chosen for a line of specialty teas we will release in the future. It’s also a salute to the Middle East, Central and South Asia, and North Africa, some of the biggest tea-drinking regions in the world. 🦁

We are based in Japan to facilitate the best sourcing and quality control for our products. 🇯🇵

All of our teas are ethically sourced, mainly from small independent family farms, and all of our packaging is 100% recyclable and/or compostable. ♻️
