Silk Road Teas is known as a purveyor of rare and artisan teas. Each spring, we travel in the tea-rich provinces of China visiting tea markets, small farms and specialty tea companies to source the finest varieties.
The teas we offer are grown and processed by true artisans of the leaf. We purchase most of our teas in small lots, single origin and 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 aromas. In support of organic farming, our business is a certified USDA NOP Organic Handler.
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. As well, we offer a wide variety of teas via the Web along with a line of premium, organic teas in sachets. Our tea boxes and sachets are packaged by adults with disabilities creating jobs and a portion of our sales support a local community project serving meals to families in need.
We deeply appreciate our customers and we strive to provide them a great cup every time. Please contact us if you have any questions about our teas and policies. Your comments and feedback are welcomed.
Thank you for your patronage, we hope you enjoy our teas.
