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.

Can a green tea be described as warming? Soothing, calming, and very comforting green tea. It happily surprised me! Since it is not produced in a traditional green tea production region, or in any type of tea production site.

Really good tea! Outstanding in all aspects a tea can be described for a non traditional tea producing country 😋👌💫
