Tea Dealers

Stefen Ramirez and Shin Won Yoon created Tea Dealers with the aim to introduce the highest quality pure, non-blended teas to America. Our tea catalog is a distinctive selection of exceptional teas that focus on cultivation, the artistry of the producer, and the cultural heritage of each origin.  We import teas from India, Japan, Korea, China, and Taiwan and source them directly from the farmers.  All of the selections use traditional agriculture methods that do not use pesticides and only natural fertilizers when needed. 

Since 2008 we have operated with these core principals that always end with tea:

Source directly from farmers only the best tea.

Curate elegant ceramics that enhance the daily ritual of making tea.

Create a welcoming, beautiful experience for the enjoyment and appreciation of tea.

 In June 2015, Tea Dealers opened its first retail store located in the Japanese restaurant, 1or8 ( in Brooklyn. Every Tuesday and Sunday afternoons Tea Tastings are offered that are free, informal and informative. There is no reservation needed and we welcome you to visit anytime. 

Tea Dealers also manages educational programs focusing on the preparation and ceremony of tea and the integration of tea into the arts. Our staff has been a part installations involving tea service at museums like the Guggenheim, Noguchi, etc. Additionally we have contributed to tea programs such as high tea at the Williamsburg Hotel, tastings for the Ministry of Agriculture of Japan and tea with meditation at Nike Lab. By supporting these unique settings we hope to communicate the inspiration and warmth the experience of drinking tea has given us in our everyday lives.
