Brewers of happiness, one cup of organic tea at a time. Family-run Happy Earth Tea visits all the tea gardens they source from, ensuring fair wages and conditions. Check out their great selection of loose leaf teas – from green to chai to matcha, they share great tea tips!
We are excited to present teas from the highlands of Colombia. The garden from where we sourced our tea has been growing tea for around 50 years. In 2013 they switched to orthodox manufacturing process with technical help from Darjeeling growers. Grown in rich volcanic soil of west Andean mountains at elevations 1800-2000m - comparable to some of the highest tea growing elevations of Asia - the tea has a lovely complexity and a refined smoothness. It is also certified Organic!
