Why was Mosi created?


From Mosi's founder:

My name is Paul, and I’m the founder of Mosi Tea

I want to give you a little background on how Mosi Tea came to life. But first, the name!

“Mosi” is an homage to the beautiful people and places where I first fell in love with great tasting loose leaf tea... Zimbabwe. It’s the home of Victoria Falls, one of the world’s seven natural wonders, and one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. The locals call it “Mosi-oa-Tunya” (Mosee Wah TOON-ya). Hence the name, Mosi!

Although I was born in the United States, as a child, I grew up in Southern Africa where tea is an important part of everyday life. There was a saying… “Americans have watches; Africans have time.” 

Relationships were of the utmost importance; and when people gather, tea was always at the center. 

Now living in the USA, I still affectionately look back at my time in Africa gathered with friends around a good cup of tea. And wherever I go, I wanted to be able to take that feeling and a good cup of tea with me.

Back in 2015, I was in search of an on-the-go tea infuser that could do just that. Although there are tea infusers out there, they had their limitations and just didn’t feel or work right. So, I decided to make my own.

The Mosi Tea Infuser is three long years in the making. After coming up with my own thoughts, received incredible feedback from hundreds of tea enthusiasts, performed mechanical studies on other tea infusers, and carefully chosen quality materials and suppliers; I believe Mosi Tea is hands down the best loose leaf tea infuser out there. I hope you’ll agree.

I hope the Mosi Tea Infuser brings you not only the perfect cup of tea, but also a little more time to enjoy the beautiful places and people of our amazing planet.
