Our Humble Beginning
Coffee, Tea, and Goodness are the very essence of what we serve. From the humble beginning in a small 1,100 square foot store located in the heart of Little Saigon, a band of brothers and close friends met in 2011. With backgrounds in law, banking, sales, and engineering, this group rolled up their sleeves and lit the fire. Pot and spatula in hand, they washed, tossed, and stirred the large pot as the sweet aromas of chrysanthemum, jasmine tea leaves, longan fruit, cane sugar, artichoke, and other herbs filled the kitchen. Paying close attention to every detail of how each ingredient mixed in the large boiling pot, they came to produce not just the 7 Leaves Herbal Tea, but a vision.
A vision to create a company that brings together the best products from various cultures around the world and apply the finer details to make them even better. Details such as consistent product quality, exceptional customer service, and a nurturing environment were added to the equation that encompasses the culture of 7 Leaves. Our goal at 7 Leaves is simple, to be the change in everything that we do, from our culture of care to the quality of our products, and to how we can better serve our communities.
Today, 7 Leaves has expanded across Orange County, growing from southern to northern California. We will continue to reach as many communities as we can across the country, starting with Nevada, Texas, and moving eastward. As we continue to spread our culture of care, we are constantly reminded and guided of our mission: “To enrich and embrace the human experience through our commitment to serve the very best coffee, tea, and goodness in every cup, in every community.”

Hanging on the wall of every 7 Leaves Cafe is a canvas of Gandhi’s famous quotation, "be the change you wish to see in the world". It is a constant reminder and symbol of everything that we do – from how we create our products to the way we serve our customers, it is the very principle that guides us forward.
Culture of Care
It’s simply about taking care of one another. We strive to foster a culture of being honest and humble, coaching instead of managing, and being responsible while having fun.
