About us

“An ancient Tea house, with the registration of “Ahmed Mohammed Saleh Baeshen & Company” as an official business entity in the 1957 in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Baeshen brothers leveraged their experience to create a premium Ceylon Tea Blend named Rabea to be offered only to Baeshen family members and close friends. When the founding brothers started noticing the growing demand and fame of their family special blend by extended family members and friends, they decided to register Rabea as an official trademark in the 1969. The addition of Rabea brand to the family’s portfolio offering full range of different types of tea made the company’s heritage become the Tea experts in the region.”
