Liem Seeng Tee (1893 – 1956) was the founder of PT HM Sampoerna Tbk., one of the largest tobacco companies in Indonesia. In the 1930s, Liem Seeng Tee adopted the Indonesian name Sampoerna (cf. sempurna) meaning "perfection" as his family name, thus becoming the company's namesake. Sampoerna produces Dji Sam Soe in 1913, Sampoerna A Hijau in 1968 and Sampoerna A Mild in 1988.

He is the first generation of Sampoerna's family; father of Liem Swie Ling (Aga Sampoerna) and grandfather of Putera Sampoerna.
