ABOUT US

THISTLE & SPRIG TEA CO.

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 DIRECTLY

We practice direct trade by purchasing directly from tea growers who embrace environmentally and socially aware business practices.

We choose to source directly from medium-sized, family-run tea farms and worker cooperatives in the hopes of obtaining tea grown without harm. Four of the five farms/cooperatives we source from are certified organic.

FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY

We strive to limited our environmental impacts and choose sustainable materials and processes whenever possible. We use earth friendly 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 or "natural" flavors, 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.
