Session 02: Finding Happiness with Tea in Argentina | with Kim Wong from Sáan Blends

The Tea Curious Podcast

25-04-2022 • 1 hr 1 min

Who knew tea grew in Argentina? Not us, until we met Kim Wong from, a passionate advocate for Argentine tea and the owner of Tienda de Te, a small tea shop in Villa General Belgrano in central Argentina.

I think so many of us want to run a tea shop someday, and so we wanted to know how Kim, a Londoner with Hong Kong roots, found herself running a proudly Argentine tea business so far away from home.

She shares the real-real here. Among them: how she maintains her business on the side while running a restaurant, how she's decided to happily market to a Spanish speaking audience instead of a global one, and how she deals with the comparison-itis many of us experience when being on tea social media.

Kim also introduces us to what makes Argentina's tea special: an industry that began more than 100 years ago!
