About Our Colombian Tea

Long known for its coffee, Colombia grappled with consistent armed conflict for more than 50 years—until 2016. Now, Colombia is experimenting with tea.

Our high-grown, hand-picked Colombian teas are cultivated at over 6,000 feet in the mist-capped Andes Mountains. The tea is grown in rich, deep, young volcanic soil that naturally promotes lush plant growth. Its nearness to the equator and consistent climate result in tasty, delicate tea-tips throughout the year. The farm from which we import, outside the town of Bitaco, is the only one of its kind in Colombia. It sits alongside a protected rain forest and the estate works with the Agricola Himalaya Foundation on social development of families in the community. Our Colombian teas are Certified Organic and UTZ Certified for sustainability.

Fresh, wintery and minty in the morning

This is great tea for a cool morning -- it's crisp and minty and chocolatey, but not sweet. I've ordered it three times now and it's on my regular morning black rotation.

Outstanding tea

My whole family loves this tea. I'm usually not a big fan of peppermint, but I was making a cup of this for my wife and the aroma smelled so good that I had to try it for myself. Long story short, I'm here to order some more to make sure we don't run out.
