Tea Companies

Art of Tea is a tea importer and wholesaler based in Los Angeles, California

They hand blend and custom craft the world's finest organic teas and botanicals. Their teas are carefully selected directly from growers, each one offering a unique story. 

All of their teas are crafted using the 5000 year old tradition from signature organic loose leaf teas, organic iced teas, tea sachets, tea bags and tea gifts. Their intention is to make the experience of drinking artisan tea more fun and interactive. Each tea has a beautiful display and a unique story of its own. Some actually bloom, while others simply expand as they are infused. Directly sourcing our teas and botanicals means our teas will always be innovative and of premium quality, ensuring a truly memorable Art of Tea experience. Through direct import, they maintain a fresh and continuously replenished inventory year round which they then hand blend, custom craft and pack by hand.

Red Blossom Tea Company is located in San Francisco's Chinatown

Red Blossom Tea Company is first and foremost a family owned tea shop in San Francisco's Chinatown, but they are also much more. They are direct importers, traveling thousands of miles in search of rare teas and artisan tea ware. They are educators, striving to bring the richness of traditional tea culture to our customers. And most importantly, they are tea lovers. They love to drink tea, talk tea, think tea and even obsess over tea. They work directly with farmers and recognize that this is a more expensive way to run a tea business and that it would be easier to work through distributors or make purchases through large tea markets. But they feel that the effort they make allows them to offer higher quality teas and we get to reap the benefits of their hard work!

Rishi is a Tea Retailer and Wholesaler based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Rishi tea is a Direct Trade importer of organic teas and botanicals from the very best sources. Direct Trade also serves as the foundation of their quality control and social responsibility practices, allowing them to verify how their teas are grown and to offer complete traceability on each lot back to its source. Over 95% of the ingredients that they import are certified organic. They have even helped several producers convert from conventional to organic. Rishi believes that as tea originated from food and medicine, it is only natural that their tea practice draws inspiration from numerous disciplines, inducing third wave coffee; cocktail mixology; sommeliers’ oenology; botanical apothecary; and the traditional culinary arts from global food cultures.
