Our Story

Our story began 6 years ago in Hong Kong, where Rick, the husband told her wife, Karen that he wanted to quit his Fortune 500 job and set-up a start-up. Rick was determined to develop an automatic tea making device that makes it easy for anyone to brew a perfect cup of tea. 

Rick, was a PhD of computer and electrical engineering from the University of Waterloo. His passion to fix badly brewed tea stems from his childhood memories of bad tasting tea served at home and in restaurants in Hong Kong.

Qi Aerista believes in a better way to enjoy tea, the second most popular drink in the world after water. For the past 6 years, we focused on developing tea making device that is simple to use, yet fun for anyone to brew tea.

Our mission is to save the world from badly brewed tea.
