Verdant Tea was founded to advocate for small family tea farmers who devote their lives to making the best tea in the world.

Verdant Tea is tribute to these people – the He Family, Master Zhang, the Qianjiazhai Zhenyuan Dongsa Farmer’s cooperative, the Li Families. We exist to tell their stories and share their work so that they can thrive and continue sharing their craft for generations to come.

 

Farm-fresh tea, rushed to your doorstep

Our farmer-partners curate their own selection, set their prices and pack your tea fresh after harvest. We air ship their latest and greatest every week and get it to your door within days of your order with a free sample hand picked to fit your taste.

The freshest tea comes from the source.

Our partner tea farmers decide what to send to us in Laoshan, and they are excited to take an extremely active role in curating their own collections based on the weather and growing conditions each season. All fresh teas stay sealed, from the moment they are picked to the moment you open them to brew up the first infusion.

The flavor difference is tremendous.

 

Our partner tea farmers grow their tea without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers.

Every tea we source comes from regions free from air pollution, and watered with natural spring water for water table sustainability.

Our partners care for their land because they plan to pass it on to their children. Though none of our partners are large enough to afford organic certification, their techniques exceed organic industry standards. 

 

We support innovation and represent farmers from incredible growing regions still unknown outside of their province.
