The Silk Tea Co creates powerful and luxurious teas found nowhere else. Each blend is inspired by desire and ancient cultures. Dreamt up and meticulously researched by our founder, MJ Pham (pictured), we blend each of our teas in Europe with precious ingredients sourced from around the world. 

Each purchase you make creates a positive social impact to eliminate violence against women. As a small business founded by a former U.S. diplomat who's a first generation, Vietnamese-American woman in New York City, we stand in solidarity with our BIPOC brothers and sisters and allies.

Since our founding, we've invested in creating unforgettable tea blends for the most discerning palates. To allow our customers to fully enjoy the health benefits and experience of drinking our teas, we make them available in high grade, loose leaf form for easy steeping with your fine teaware of choice. 

We are a social impact business. Five percent of all purchases are donated to the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women. In 2021, 10% of profits from purchases of our Four Seasons Sampler pack were donated to #StopAsianHate via the following non-profit organizations: AAPI Women Lead, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, and Heart of Dinner — which fights food insecurity and isolation experienced by Asian American elders in NYC by delivering delicious and nourishing meals to them. Together with beloved members of our generous tea community and thanks to the 100% matching donation of a third-party donor, we raised nearly $5,000 in two weeks through the sale of our Golden Hour blend. All sales were personally matched by our founder and went to support Save the Children and Mozaic DMV,  a non-profit in the Washington, D.C. area assisting with the resettlement of 2,500 Afghan refugees.
