Origins of Tea

As practitioners of direct trade we take pride in the personal relationships we have built with tea and botanical growers around the world.  Our team of buyers travels extensively each year in order to select the very best micro-lots of tea and botanicals.  Our hands-on approach allows us to verify how our organic teas are grown and offers complete traceability back to the source.
