Over 250 million people use Chinese social media, many every day. We manually distill its best, most interesting stories. So you can sip them like your morning tea, instead of chugging from a fire hose.
Tea Leaf Nation is an e-magazine founded in 2011. We aspire to be a must-read source for China experts of all stripes–journalists, diplomats, academics, analysts–while remaining fun and accessible to casual China watchers. Our founding team, based in China and the United States, scours Chinese social media every day to spot trends, gauge sentiment, and carry major news stories one level deeper.
