We produce and source exclusive teas from China, India, Japan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Taiwan.
At the source of everything are the people, the plants, and the living soil.

I have been drinking tea since I was a baby and I can’t imagine life without tea.
Is in community
Presence is a virtue in all things specific. It’s a virtue not only for insight and oversight but also for maintaining community with our partners in each country, many who feel like family to us at this point.
This is also important to us while bridging the gap between those of us creating tea and those of us enjoying the fruits of each creation. We deeply value having a connection to all people and places that are involved with making and drinking tea all around the world.
We constantly work on better ways for access and refinement in the communication about our larger group and hope everyone involved enjoys getting to know more about this increasingly tightly knit global community.
Our current retail selection is growing so look for new teas coming soon…
Our teas are clean, flavorful, well processed, and always represent an expression of the highest category of quality available in the world.
Pair your tea with the right tea ware and enjoy a total experience.
The right tools are critical. Informed preparation can exemplify the finer notes in the leaf and less refined techniques risk missing a tea’s potential. Our tea ware selection represents the tools needed to get the most out of every cup.
