Located in Boulder, Colorado, Ku Cha House of Tea, formerly known as The Leaf, was established in 2005 to bring you the finest teas around the world.
The history of tea dates back to 5000 years ago. The Chinese people first cultivated tea and drank it mostly for medicinal purposes. Since then, tea has been adopted by cultures worldwide. Right now, over 50 countries in the world produce teas. Because of its nutritional value, tea has become increasingly popular in the United States.
Drinking tea is fun. Green tea provides a light, fresh taste; black tea, a full bodied flavor; and oolong tea, a blend of both green and black tea flavors. No matter what taste you prefer, you can always find a type of tea that suits you. Tea drinks are colorful: green, yellow, black, and red. You name it! When you drink tea, you can enjoy its delightful flavor and appreciate its color.
Choose a type of tea that suits your mood or the weather. What drink can be better than a cup of iced tea on a hot summer afternoon? A warm green tea on a brisk spring morning? A flavored herbal tea on a fall night? Or a hot black tea on a cold winter morning? Explore your interest in tea right here!

Dragon Well Superior, Also called Long Jing, this is one of the top 10 Chinese green teas from Zhejiang Province. As the top grade of Dragon Well (Dragon Well has 11 grades from Superior and grade 1 - 10), it produces a brew of golden color, distinctive nutty aroma and full, round flavor. This tea also contains the highest concentration of catechins (the major antioxidant element) among Chinese green teas.
Meng Ding Yu Lu, Harvested from the top of Meng Shan in Sichuan Province, Meng Ding Yu Lu was one of the earliest tribute teas dating back to the Tang Dynasty (9th century). Lu Yu, the Sage of Tea in China (733-804), pointed out in his famous book The Classic of Tea, that the best water for brewing tea came from the middle of the Yangzi River and that the best tea was from Meng Shan. This tea is refreshing and vegetal with a sweet aftertaste.
Xing Yang Mao Jian, is one of the top ten most famous teas in China. It is cherished for its refreshing taste and pleasant aroma. The finest and most tender Xin Yang Mao Jian tea leaves are picked from tea trees growing in the high mountain area of Xin Yang. The tea has a slightly smoky aroma and a full bodied taste with sweet notes which tend to linger in your mouth.
