What We Stand For
Traditional loose leaf Chinese tea holds incredible value on the international market. Buying from Tea Drunk ensures you're supporting the most authentic and sustainable supply chain. These are the grand cru wine equivalents of tea. In-style and mass-produced loose leaf teas may be cheaper, but we offer the best value of tea at the highest caliber. We either commission the entire batch or work alongside our heritage farmers to produce the tea.
Dedication to tradition.
The best tea leaves to buy are those that come from China's top terroir because of the level of artisanship developed over centuries and the very high accountability for holistic farming to preserve this ancient history. Our teas are produced entirely naturally, without pesticides or fertilizers.
Rich, yet accessible, tea education.
We aim to introduce the pinnacle of tea to tea lovers, nurturing those interested from their very first cup to lifelong connoisseurs through education and access. We strive to sustain the height of tea that humans have achieved thus far in history.
Thank you for being part of this mission; we hope you share cups of tea and the knowledge you learn with those that you love.
Our Promise To You
We Promise You Unparalleled Quality and Transparency: Our teas are truly "true origin" teas hailing from mountains with generations of history, harvested from ancient varietals of tea trees, and crafted by heritage farmers in the utmost conservative fashion. We have exclusive rights to rare batches that are the grand cru wine equivalents of tea. These teas have very transparent pricing, dictated mainly by the terroir and fresh-leaf prices each year. We offer some of the best prices in the industry for teas of this caliber as we either commission the entire batch of tea or are the tea's actual producer.
Why Not Organic?: Although our loose leaf teas are not "USDA Certified," they are cared for more naturally than Certified Organic tea's requirements. We work exclusively with heritage tea farmers from the most prestigious top terroir in China. They do not use anything synthetic in their processing because they will negatively affect the environment, the tea itself, and the livelihood of the farm families who live in the region. The use of chemicals is regionally forbidden in these top terroir regions because of the land protections and history. The age of the tea tree plays a valuable part in tea's taste; most of our teas are harvested from tea trees planted by generations before us, before machinery and modern agriculture, in deep mountains among diverse vegetation. Biodiversity, elevation, and harvest time all play a role in sustainability. Long surviving tea trees in China's historic tea mountains prove that we once had a sustainable cultivation method.
Our Tea is Just Tea: The only ingredient in our tea is pure 100% natural loose leaf tea. We do not have any artificial ingredients or additives in our tea. Nor do we blend our tea with herbs, roots, peels, or anything else. The dynamic flavor profile in our teas is through age-perfected crafting utilizing heat and moisture to work with tea's natural enzymes and rich compounds.
