Make things happen, explore distant shores, and most of all, drink tea. The company has been guided by this philosophy since Albert Gschwendner and his wife Gwendalina turned their dreams of a teashop into a reality in 1978. Likewise, this spirit has underscored the success of Albert and his brother Karl in assembling a network of franchise partners, bringing together an independent group of tightly connected tea lovers and tea traders over the course of two decades. And even in an era of primitive personal computers and dial-up internet, this pioneering set of principles pushed TeaGschwendner to launch a wildly successful online teashop. Today, this entrepreneurial fire and experience motivates the education and training of Tea Sommeliers, ambassadors on behalf of tea that are steeped deeply in its ways.
Even though the name is admittedly a bit tricky to pronounce, each day more and more people around the world are becoming fans of TeaGschwendner. They are drawn by an appreciation for tea – a love for the product that finds its way into the heart of new and experienced tea drinkers alike. And here there can be no language barrier, no borders. There is simply joy.
Our success has been built upon the quality of our products and the quality of our people – the expertise of our buyers, the exacting standards of our laboratory team, and the inspired dedication and passion of our employees and franchise partners. With this qualified team on board we will depart for even more distant shores, shores that are far beyond our sight.
