Our Story

“Share Tea” = “tasty tea”

Share Tea Dining Business Corporate was founded in 1992 by Mr. Cheng Kai-Lung and we started off our business with to-go black tea and pearl milk tea drinks. With great comments and feedback from our customers Share Tea was known as good tea. Since then, we have expanded our branches all over the world and we have had great success as part of the tea-drinking sector.

Share the world, share happiness
