Working with Whole Tea Leaves
What sets our bottled teas apart from most is our dedication to using high quality tea leaves. In each bottle, we aim to provide flavorful tea that stands on its own without added flavorings or sweeteners — tea that is organic and never from concentrate. Each batch is carefully brewed and tested in our microbrewery in Portland, OR. Because of the purity of our process, we are able to provide our customers with a fresh, authentic, and ultimately better iced tea experience. In addition to tea, we also offer bottled herbal beverages. Herbs are carefully selected and blended to provide a delicious and balanced range of flavors.
Why a Micro-Tea-Brewery?
The idea of a microbrewery originated from our desire to offer bottled teas of the same quality that customers have come to expect from our loose-leaf teas. In 2010, we went ahead and built our own micro-tea-brewery 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 it was a huge task to set up a new teabrewery, the results are very rewarding.
Partner with us and spread the unsweet truth of small-batch, quality bottled tea. Sample our selection of eleven unsweetened flavors, each full of eminent freshness, aroma and passion, with no room for sugar, extracts, oils, powders or short-cuts. When you taste our tea you will experience the integrity of pure leaves in every sip. We promise, there is something for everyone from the adventurous, to those seeking the simple comfort of delectable iced tea.
“Just saying thank you for packaging your excellent bottled teas in glass bottles. Avoiding single-use plastic is as high a priority to me as tea quality, maybe even higher. When I can’t find a sugar-free option in glass at the store, I simply don’t buy tea. So many beverage companies start out with glass and then switch to plastic, and I’m glad Tao of Tea has been able to remain with glass. (And great bottles, I might add.)
