Our Story


A loose leaf tea shop in a coffee city...

When we first opened our door inside Prahran Market, we faced (and still do face) many doubts and questions. Why an artisan Chinese tea shop in the middle of a coffee city, where majority of the tea drinkers prefer simple black tea in a tea bag?


Best Natural Tea

We understand our challenges, but we will not forget why we started: the simple wish to share good tea with more people. Be that a tea enthusiast, or a coffee lover having an occasional cuppa.

In "A Leaf Story", we pride ourselves being the Chinese tea specialist for oolong and puerh (茶). We also offer Japanese お茶, European tisanes, and Indian Masala Chai! Our range share one commonality, they are all loose leaves. Because quality tea starts with loose leaves.
