The Highest Quality
Premium tea leaves should be brewed carefully, thoughtfully and always with a smile. Huang and Wu, two good friends from Taiwan, knew that back in 1996 and set out to create a business that uses premium teas in a variety of innovative and delicious recipes.
For ten years, the duo worked to find the best ingredients and to create a customized experience that every tea connoisseur would enjoy. In 2006, the first Gong cha store opened in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. Today, Gong cha operates more than 1,500 stores world-wide that delight customers with refreshing tea-infused drinks and bring joy to people’s lives.
“Gong cha” means to offer the best tea to the emperor from all of one’s possessions. It is a tribute and represents the highest quality which we are committed to delivering to our customers. In 2009, Gong cha opened its first overseas outlet in Hong Kong and then continued expanding to Singapore and Korea. What started as a small dream in Taiwan has blossomed into a beloved and global tea company in 20 countries around the world.
Gong cha has led the way for modern tea shop culture to prosper and is dedicated to producing an enlightening experience that can satisfy the five senses. Whether you sit in our store in Taiwan, Korea, or the US, you will be embraced and honored. Our mission is to inspire the human spirit and create happiness.
