What is our story?
Founded in 1994, TEALEAVES is the tea purveyor of choice to 5 star hotels and Michelin Chefs worldwide. We bring the finest teas, flowers, and herbs to our blending center, and meticulously cup out each ingredient, searching for the ultimate palate. As experts in Palate = Color + Aroma + Taste, we believe in a unique philosophy. Using tea as our vessel, we blend techniques, stories, people, and ideas together to create positive change for a better world.
At TEALEAVES, we are a diverse collective of design-centric colleagues intent on making a difference - working on intractable problems ranging from biodiversity loss to inclusive design. Through the application of rigorous design and business practices our team strives to push the envelope to protect personal and planetary wellness.

Our Current Projects
TEALEAVES X Pantone Color Institute: The Color of Biodiversity
In collaboration with Pantone Color and the United Nation CBD, TEALEAVES is set to blend the official 'Color of Biodiversity'. With this Color, we hope to harness the press that it attracts to mainstream the issue of biodiversity loss and shed light to the integral role biodiversity preservation and regeneration holds in saving the planet.
TEALEAVES X Terger Charity Nepal
At the foothills of Mount Manaslu in the Himalayas of Nepal, women farmers harvest wild goji berries. In a high altitude, biodiverse environment, the goji's are untouched by pollution and contain a robust palate of flavor. In support of the charity and empowering these incredible women, TEALEAVES has purchased their entire 2022/2023 Goji Berry harvest and will be blending a Wild Goji tea in honor of these women.
