Our Story

Our story begins in 2016 when we — Grace and Jess  were assigned as college roommates. After becoming the best of friends, we found ourselves two years later embarking on the backpacking adventure of a lifetime through Southeast Asia. Little did we know, this trip would introduce us to our game-changer — Oolong tea.

After traveling through 7 countries and 18 cities, navigating bustling streets, and hopping between attractions, we hit a wall of exhaustion. Oolong tea came to our rescue  it was everywhere (from vending machines to convenience stores to restaurants and more)! Sipping on Oolong tea kept us hydrated and miraculously invigorated. It was our secret weapon against fatigue, nourishing and easing digestion as we explored new and unfamiliar cuisines. 

After returning to the U.S., we found ourselves in a predicament  — the only readily available drinks we could find were mostly filled with high sugar and caffeine. We missed that magical Oolong experience and all of the benefits that came with it. That's when the light bulb went off — why not bring the magic here? Every sip of Ocha's Oolong tea powder nods to those unforgettable Southeast Asian moments. We're handing you a ticket to refreshment and a shortcut to vitality amid your hectic life. 

We hope you enjoy the benefits of Ocha as much as we do!
