Our story

Tea stories was founded by Lucia Parlanti in 2018, after her first trip to China to meet her parents-in-law. In 2019 she quit her stable office job at Philips to pursue her passion and create a place where she could express her creativity and inspire other people towards a more conscious and simple living.

In August 2021, Tea stories expanded with the opening of their first flagship store in the heart of Strijp-s, Eindhoven (The Netherlands). 

“Tired of living by the rule, tea slowly helped me transform inside out, unlocking the path to a more meaningful and simple living”

Tea stories is the first 100% vegan bubble tea brand. Our goal is to inspire modern consumers towards a more sustainable living.

Our values:

  • 100% vegan. All our drinks are made with plant based milk (no we do not serve cow milk). We believe that shifting toward a plant-based diet is an essential step in reducing our environmental footprint and live a more conscious and compassionate life.
  • Higher quality. We use real tea, fruits and high quality ingredients carefully selected instead of artificial powders and fruit syrups to create the most delicious drinks and food.
  • Experience. We create a unique modern bubble tea experience. Our minimalistic interior is a plain canvas where our creative drinks stand out to creates a welcoming, relaxed and inspiring vibe where everyone feels at ease and included.
  • Community. We know the importance of creating a circle of like-minded people to inspire as many people as possible towards a more sustainable living. That’s why we create events to engage with the local community and businesses, collaborate with local artists to elevate our customer experience and reward the most loyal customers with out stamp card program.
