THE SPARK OF AN IDEA
Inspired by their love for quality tea, husband and wife duo Mr. and Mrs. Man began traveling all over Asia to learn, taste and find the best whole leaf teas. As former teachers, they were also passionate about literacy education. They decided to combine their two passions and in 2013, founded Man Cha 文茶, an independent purveyor of fine tea that gives education back to the local community. They sourced quality tea direct from small independent farms, designed and repackaged the tea leaves in Hong Kong and ran pop ups all over Hong Kong, London, Japan and Australia sharing their tea and dreams. With some of the profits made, they ran English reading programs for underprivileged children in Sham Shui Po, one of the poorest districts in Hong Kong.
Man Cha strives to provide clients with not just a quality product but a lifestyle experience that is both unique and memorable.

Our mission is to share the joy of traditional tea culture and the health benefits of tea with our customers. Drinking artisanal tea is not a mystery and can easily be appreciated by anyone in a café, restaurant, office, hotel, spa or at home. We believe more knowledgeable tea drinkers will drive up the quality of produce available on the main market and that by offering our top grade tea, people can use it as a benchmark for the finest tea available.
We source our teas from independent and small farmers around Asia as well as work closely with our tea partners to create unique tea blends. Each tea has its own individual story. Some are handcrafted by 4th generation female farmers, some have won Great Taste Awards, one tea earned its name from the Queen while another can turn pink in colour! Our tea collection is thoughtfully curated to wow your senses. Whether you are treating yourself or gifting our tea, we hope it’ll spark joy.
