Over 45 Years
Of A Remarkable Heritage

Established in 1974 in Taiwan as a simple tea shop with a restaurant on the side. 1990 marked an incredible milestone as the first Van Cheong Tea retail tea shop opened in Vancouver, British Columbia

Within the Heart of Taiwan 

Van Cheong Tea was established in 1974 in Luku Village, Nantou of Taiwan

Luku Village is one of the most popular tea plantation districts in the country and a very well-known tourist destination. Being surrounded by a strong culture and passion for tea, our family has participated in annual tea competitions as a long-standing tradition for the past few decades. With the deep roots of our family’s tea farming background, this marked the beginning of Van Cheong Tea.

This is how our story began

The origin of Van Cheong Tea

The name Van Cheong Tea stems from the combination of our grandfather’s heritage of being a pediatrician, his clinic named 楊吉祥堂 and honoring my father’s middle name 雲 meaning cloud. Van Cheong (雲祥) unites the meaning of cloud and harmony and leads us to the feeling we hope you all receive from enjoying the best cup of premium quality tea available.

Why Tea?

Premium tea is the result of hand-picked tea leaves from a specific season.
Spring and Winter are the two prime seasons that yield the best premium tea.


Tea harvesters work by removing the tea leaves and placing them in large wicker baskets. Once the baskets are full, they are transported to a tea processing plant on the tea plantation. For a high-quality tea, nothing surpasses hand-picked tea leaves.


When steeped, excellent tea should be deeply aromatic and amplify the unique scents of the dry tea leaves.


Great tea will have a strong, recognizable taste and mouthfeel. The best-tasting green tea will feel and taste smooth, bright and refreshing; while black tea has a deeper, more intense taste.
