Thanks to everyone who supported our Indiegogo campaign! We're thrilled to move forward with our pilot of the Global Tea Exchange with all of your support.

And if you'd like to contribute, it's not too late. Just send us a private message and we can help set that up.


Last 14 hours of the Global Tea Exchange Fundraiser. Whether you buy tea or not, thanks everyone for your support. By nourishing me with friendships or simply inspiring me with your lives, you are all a part of my enthusiasm for this project in some way.

We are down to the last 14 hours of the Global Tea Exchange fundraiser. All the teas and goodies purchased through this campaign go directly to funding this first ever international exchange program.

Through our time spent in remote tea growing areas, we've learned that communities want to host international guests and share their skills and work, and tea producers want to travel to the US to share their expertise and knowledge. That is why we created this program.

You all support us in so many ways, and for that we thank you. We hope you enjoy the teas and goods produced by these communities.
