In a rapidly changing world, timelessness has become a rare virtue, and a seemingly impossible feat. In a world full of shortcuts and compromise, Denong Tea seeks out the timeless. In 1998, their parent company Denong Tea Company first started conducting tea-related trade in Yunnan Province, China. In 2005, they expanded and began manufacturing, storing, trading and auctioning Pu-erh tea. They were soon awarded numerous accolades after quickly earning the respect of both their customers and peers in the Pu-erh tea industry. After the company’s success in China, Denong Tea opened up additional branches in Hong Kong and Taiwan. All throughout the world, the name Denong has come to represent an assurance of quality and dignity. Denong Tea Inc. was established as its US branch in 2012, and was officially launched in March 2016. Since then, they’ve dedicated themselves to sharing the miracle of Pu-erh with an American audience.
They have opened the flagship store in Pasadena on 11/11/2017. 
 
Store address: 482 S. Arroyo Parkway #108, Pasadena, CA 91105.
