Golden Moon Tea is located at Chantilly, VA and was established in 1994 by owner Marcus Stout, who had traveled to Hong Kong with his mother at the age of ten.
Discovering a different culture and exotic foods led to an awakening of the senses, which landed him in culinary school in NYC many years later.
The Evolution of Golden Moon Tea
Marcus was soon bored at culinary school, so it wasn’t until he traveled to Paris and happened upon a café where they served loose leaf tea when he had a revelation. Back home, bagged tea was all he’d been exposed to and the idea of a whole new world of high quality tea switched his focus.
Venturing into the tea industry was a daunting task but he soon got the swing of it, opening Golden Moon Tea in 1994 and offering the best tea he could get his hands on.
As time went by, Marcus decided on a lifestyle change that would send a ripple effect throughout his company in ways he’d never dreamed of.
How Clean Living heralded the beginning of Pure tea
When Marcus started cutting out chemicals and processed foods from his diet, he felt better, looked better and began to lead a happier and healthier life.
Soon realizing that his own tea company was not as pure as his diet, he delved into extensive research over the following year and made a startling discovery.
Learning how the botanicals were grown, stored and flavored began to expose just how many chemicals and hidden toxins his beloved teas contained.
It was then when he decided to take the obvious, painful step to source every ingredient from scratch, which resulted in dumping over 50% of Golden Moon Teas.
After all his hard work and sacrifice, he was finally able to say with confidence that every tea on offer at his company was free from all artificial additives, toxins and chemicals.
How Golden Moon Tea Ensures Purity
- Using only the largest tea leaves to provide an unparalleled experience
- Working directly with the best tea growers, big and small
- Sourcing tea that is free from pesticides and chemical fertilizers
- Ensuring that their tea is grown without genetic modifications or harmful practices
- Blending teas with only real and natural ingredients, which also means zero flavor sprays
Take it from Deepak Chopra
Golden Moon Tea also ensures that they offer only loose leaf tea, as teabags are usually plastic coated, which leaches toxins into the tea.
All of the above has led to pure and clean tea which has one famous tea sipper – Deepak Chopra – claim that “Golden Moon Tea has some of the most exquisite teas I have ever tasted.”
