Working with Whole Tea Leaves
What sets our bottled teas apart is our dedication to the tea leaf itself. In our bottled teas, we aim to provide superior quality tea, with no added flavorings or sweeteners. Each bottle is made in our microbrewery using pure-leaf teas — organic, whole-leaf, and never from concentrate. Each batch is carefully brewed and tested. Because of the purity of this process, we are able to provide a fresh, authentic, and ultimately better iced tea experience. In addition to our pure-leaf teas, we also create herbal bottled teas. Herbs are carefully selected and blended to provide a delicious and balanced range of flavors. From our herbal blends to our classic pure-leaf teas, you can expect excellent quality and flavor from our bottles.
What’s so special about our brewing process ?
Brewing tea well can be a challenging process. For crafting a memorable, fresh taste, exceptional, pure leaf teas, clean water and an artful brewer’s hand are needed. However, as the bottled teas industry in the United States has evolved, trying to find an exceptional brewer to work with whole leaf teas in micro batches is even a bigger challenge.
The intention for our micro teabrewery originated from our desire to offer bottled teas of the same quality as our loose leaf teas, that many have come to expect. As a result, in 2010, we decided to build our own micro-teabrewery in Portland, Oregon. We do not use any powders, extracts or flavorings, but rather fresh, full tea leaves. It is a small team of passionate brewers who craft every batch, through careful tending and extensive cuppings. Although, an extensive task in putting up a new teabrewery, the results are very rewarding.
