- ABOUT US
Silk Road Teas, your source for rare & artisan teas.Silk Road Teas is known as a purveyor of rare and artisan teas from China. Each spring, we travel in the tea-rich southeastern provinces to source our teas. Visiting tea markets, small farms, specialty tea companies and tea brokers, we find the finest varieties of white, green, oolong, black and Pu-erh tea.
The teas we offer are grown and processed by true artisans of the leaf. We purchase most of our teas in small lots that are single origin and often handmade. It is our belief the best tea is harvested early in the spring, when the days are warming and the nights cool. In that brief harvest window, known as "before the rain" teas, the fresh and tender leaves offer nuanced flavors and tastes. These teas are limited in supply and are recognized as some of the finest teas in the world. Once plucked and processed, many of our teas are not blended and we preserve these unique small lots for our customers' enjoyment.
We sell to well-known U.S. tea companies, tea shops, specialty grocery, coffee companies and fine restaurants - purveyors of high-end, specialty teas throughout the United States and Canada. As well, we offer a wide variety of teas for lovers of tea and individuals via the Web along with a line of premium, organic teas in sachets. Please look for them in your local stores as we guarantee that you will find these teas are exceptional and ideal for enjoying tea at home, the office, while traveling or entertaining. Please note, our tea boxes and sachets are packaged by adults with disabilities
Thank you for your patronage and we hope you enjoy our teas.
