“I can relate to their (TEALEAVES’) quest to find and create unique blends; I had also once created such products for my restaurant by partnering with three breweries in Japan to make our sake and a local microbrewery to make our beer.” – Dieter Xiao

As a citizen of the world, Dieter Xiao was born in Spain with Chinese parents. He left Madrid to attend university in the USA, where he obtained his M.S. and B.S in Hotel, Restaurant and Travel Administration.

“During all the time I have had the pleasure of counting on TEALEAVES as our tea partner, I have always been impressed by their almost fanatical pursuit of perfection. Tea is such an important part of our restaurant offerings, and being able to have such a fantastic relationship gives us peace of mind. Unique and high-quality beverages can only enhance the dinner experience and should not be underestimated or overlooked.”

Over the past twenty years, Dieter has taken various assignments in Europe, Asia and North America, all in the Food and Beverage industry. Some of his experiences have led him to the role of General Manager at the MGM Resorts International in Las Vegas. He is now at the AAA Four-Diamond award-winning Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood in Florida, applying his years of expertise in luxury hospitality.

He is very thankful for the opportunity to do what he does best every day and hopes to be able to give such global education to his two sons in the future.
