who we are
We are a premium artisan tea company crafting flavorful and inspired loose leaf blends. We handcraft our teas in small batches with sustainably grown herbs, spices and flowers, and source our teas from family-run tea farms or cooperatives with strong social and environmental standards.
Our mission is to provide our customers with the most pure, flavorful ingredients possible and invoke a connection with nature in each cup.
WHAT WE DO
source teas direct-trade
Our gourmet teas are selectively sourced direct trade by purchasing straight from tea growers, rather than through a web of middlemen, with the intent obtaining tea grown without harm. We currently source from established tea growing regions in Taiwan, Japan, India, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
The suppliers we work with are worker cooperatives or medium-sized, family-run tea farms. Four of the five farms/cooperatives we source from are certified organic.
focus on sustainability
We strive to limit our environmental impacts and choose sustainable materials and processes whenever possible. We use sustainable packaging that is either compostable or recyclable, and try to limit our waste as much as possible. Loose leaf tea is not only more flavorful, it creates less waste, too.
We hope to enable our customers to be more sustainable in their daily lives by offering plastic-free, intentional, low impact-alternatives.

choose clean ingredients
We exclusively use ethically-sourced ingredients (such as direct-trade, certified organic, local/naturally-grown, and/or wildcrafted) that are natural, fresh and as close to the original plant state as possible.
We do not use artificial flavors or "natural flavors" (which generally contain glycerin or propylene glycol), sweeteners, preservatives, etc. We only use food-grade botanical oils that do not contain other additives. Our ingredient list is naturally free of gluten, dairy, corn, nuts, sugar, and animal products.
