AN SHIM TEA is a modern tea project focused on the traditions and innovations of high tea culture. We make the tea industry closer to customers, educate, and entertain to make high-quality tea more popular and understandable. We organize tea events focused on tea education and popularization.

We source tea straight from producers to guarantee authenticity and freshness as well as organic and highest quality aspects. The teas in our collection are professionally selected and quality-assessed based on the academic knowledge gained from scientists and industry leaders in the study of tea. From classic to modern phenomena as well as our own blends and unique teas, which were born as a result of our long-time friendship with tea masters from all over the world!

"I'm lucky to have an unbelievable tea way where I met a lot of wonderful tea people from all over the world. During my long career in the tea industry as a tea master, tea taster, and owner of a tea brand, I made a lot of valuable connections and relationships with tea producers and tea experts from tea-producing countries. Getting deeper into this endless world, I believe this way of life makes me a better person every single day. All I want is to share with you everything I see and feel, all the knowledge of mine and my dear colleagues, as well as bring you closer to, what eastern friends call, a sense of beauty."

These people cultivate, harvest, and produce tea with devotion using old family recipes for generations. The mastery, developed over hundreds of years reflected in the appearance, aroma, taste, and colour of infusion, as well as the wonderful state this drink gives.
