Us Two Tea is a representation of the second generation of Asian Americans. An Asian founded and owned tea brand that promotes our culture, values, and lifestyle. We are a brand that represents quality, authenticity and unity. We want to inspire our next generation to be more confident about our culture and stay true and authentic to who they are - to be proud of being an Asian American.
Tea is for everyone
“Us Two” means the two of us. It’s about celebrating all sorts of relationships and connecting people together. We want to celebrate all the small moments in life that give us the greatest joy - a kiss, a smile, a laugh, or a burst of creativity - alone or in the company of those we love. We want to make tea culture more accessible to people in the U.S and to speak to them in a way that coffee connects people here: inclusive, welcoming and accessible.
A note from the founder
Tea is at the heart of Asian culture and it has always been a part of my life. Yet the tea brands we know and love are not Asian. I couldn’t help but wonder why. I have lived in the US for 10 years now and I have realized that we cannot just wonder. It is our generation’s responsibility to claim our culture and create a brand that represents us.
Us Two Tea is not a traditional Asian tea brand. We are a reflection of the Asian American experience, a unique combination of the east and west. Unfortunately, being a minority group in the U.S makes us a target for discrimination and racism. Constantly trying to fit in, we sometimes get lost in the process and forget who we are.
I hope this brand encourages our next generation to be more confident about our culture and stay true and authentic to who they are - to be proud of being Asian American. I hope it inspires them to pursue their dreams and gives them the confidence to do what they love. We can dare to defy expectations and stand out, not just fit in.
