We are Yang and Chenlin, two friends who transformed our lives from financial traders to passionate tea entrepreneurs in Amsterdam. Our adventure all started with us travelling back from a holiday in China, our suitcases filled with quality tea from private family collections. As we shared the tea with our international friends here in the Netherlands, we noticed them repeatedly coming back to us, asking for more. Savoring the elegance and freshness of Longjing green tea from the first flush spring harvest one afternoon, we realized our calling—to bring the rich tea-drinking culture of China to our second hometown, Amsterdam.
Finding quality teas from China at transparent prices can be a challenge, as the Chinese tea market is heavily network-based. We embarked on calling our connections with the tea farms across the country. By building our relationship with local tea farmers upon trust and mutual understanding, we can proudly introduce certified tea with transparency to the European market.
To honor the expertise and craftsmanship of Chinese tea masters, we created a haven in Amsterdam—a "library of Chinese tea." Here, we curate an exquisite collection of full-leaf loose teas, inviting tea lovers to explore the heritage, flavors, and fragrances of China's esteemed tea-growing regions.
At Cha Moods, we believe that every cup of tea holds a story. Our meticulously curated selection showcases teas from the verdant fields of Yunnan to the misty mountains of Fujian, each capturing a unique narrative that envelops you in a world of tranquility.
At Cha Moods, we believe in the transformative power of tea. We see tea as more than just a beverage—it is a ritual, an experience, and a doorway to inner peace. Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that tea time should be a moment of tranquility, a chance to nurture your mind and explore the depths of tea culture.
The essence of our philosophy is embodied in our brand name, 茶沐 (Cha Moods), which translates to "tea showering." Just as a refreshing shower cleanses the body, a cup of tea cleanses the soul. It invites you to pause, look beyond the surface, and find serenity amidst the chaos. Through tea, you can discover the ancient wisdom of balance, self-care, and Chinese aesthetics.
We strive to bridge the gap between tradition and modernity. Our curated selection of teas and teaware embraces the authenticity of our roots while embracing a contemporary touch. We invite you to explore our collection and find the perfect cup of tea that resonates with your taste, nourishes your spirit, and rejuvenates your life.
