Tekuno is a San Francisco-based tea company focused on the quiet, expansive breadth of Japanese teas & the exquisite objects inspired by traditional tea ceremony. We source uniquely expressive and rare teas discovered through direct relationships with small-scale Japanese producers — working to represent the nuances of single origin tea while inviting all to cultivate meaningful practices around its preparation, ritual, and enjoyment. We are a curatorial collective devoted to the art of Japanese tea. Founded by Catherine Jue in 2019, we are a community guided by curiosity and connection, inspired by the time-honored lineage, distinct expertise, and beautiful complexity held in a single cup. To us, tea is a medium for a bigger message: a daily reminder that life expands when we slow down, let our senses lead, and take time to connect.
