First launched as a Pu’er tea blog by Peter Micic and Damien Kinney in October 2012, Cloud Nine Teas now sources and sells Yunnan black tea, premium Oolong teas from the highlands of Taiwan, celebrated green teas from the Uji Valley, near Kyoto, Japan, and hand-crafted Japanese tea accessories.
We have a passion for stories that entertain, inform and provide content found nowhere else. We are committed to providing different perspectives on all matters tea and to sharing our developing knowledge of tea-related topics.
We believe that tea is a community that stretches to all corners of the planet and that people are passionate about the teas they love to drink.
With that in mind, with every purchase we send you samples to try, and follow that up with any information or tips that you need to refine your own exploration and tasting of tea.
