MÖGE TEE is bringing the exquisite taste of Chinese tea culture to Hamlin! Brewing every drink freshly from high-quality loose tea leaves and using fresh fruit and organic milk (never powders or syrups) makes MÖGE TEE one of the most well-known brands in the Chinese tea industry.
Horizon West resident and Owner Chris Liu grew up in Chengdu, China, a popular tourist destination with a history that dates back to at least the 4th century B.C. and home to the famous Chengdu Research Base for Giant Pandas. From an early age, Chris was involved in his family’s catering businesses and was heavily influenced by his mother’s entrepreneurial spirit when she opened a Chinese restaurant in Xi’an.
After traveling to New York in 2018 and meeting with the CEO of MÖGE TEE, Chris, and his wife, Paris, knew they wanted to bring the new style tea concept to Central Florida. Following this, they opened their first MÖGE TEE with friends in Orlando by Icon Park on Sand Lake Road. They then consulted on a second location in downtown Orlando before bringing their passion for tea, Chinese culture, and customer service to Hamlin.
Chris and Paris are expecting their second daughter and shared, “We enjoy living in this community and seeing the rapid growth in Horizon West. A growing Asian population and love for MÖGE TEE make this a perfect location for our family and business.”
“Our most popular tea is the Cheese Foam/Fresh Red Dragon Fruit Tea, which can also be made vegan-friendly! Beyond the traditional milk and boba teas, we also have a wide range of other handcrafted beverages, including fresh fruit teas, bubble milk teas, cheese foam teas, Milk Swirl (milk alternatives available), homemade tarot and purple Yara, fresh fruit Yakult, and Uji matcha; so you will be able to find the perfect drink for any occasion,” said Chris.
Pointing out two kiosks and three large screens displaying the menu items and pictures, he added, “Our Hamlin location is also one of the first to use ordering kiosks, allowing guests to explore our menu of over sixty-three beverages. We also have many snack and dessert items such as Tofu Puddings, Dorayaki, and various Souffles, of which a couple are unique to our location!”
