Only One Earth

We care about tea. We care more about our home planet.

We are committed to supporting individual tea farms to implement sustainable and regenerative practices - for the long-term well-being of the tea farmers, tea drinkers, and tea communities. We aim to cultivate a future where each cup of tea not only delights the senses but also nurtures the environment.

Through our collaborative efforts, we strive to cultivate a harmonious ecosystem where the principles of sustainability and regeneration flourish, enriching the lives of all involved and ensuring a bountiful future for tea cultivation.

Soil

Soil serves as the lifeblood of tea farming, influencing everything from plant nutrition and flavor to environmental sustainability. Protecting and nurturing the soil is essential for ensuring the continued success and resilience of tea cultivation worldwide.

Tea Tree

Tea tree thrives in rocky, well-drained soil, shaded from excessive sunlight, within regions characterized by significant temperature fluctuations between day and night. Additionally, it flourishes in balanced ecosystems where natural pest control is maintained.

Family Tea Farm

All truly great tea starts with responsible land practices and thoughtful farming, typically found in small family-owned farms. Through its unique model and particular strengths, family farming yields not only more sustainable tea but also better flavor, texture, and aroma.

Climate

Tea plants can grow from tropical to subtropical climates but often require high humidity and heavy rainfall during the growing season. However, extreme and unpredictable weather that swings between drought and floods is creating hardships for China's tea growers.

Responsible Sourcing

We source our teas directly from small family farms with generations of tea cultivation experience. We visit all our sources and partners to fully understand all aspects of tea production. Every decision around cultivation changes the texture, aroma, aftertaste, and health benefits of the finished leaves. We are dedicated to finding the best tea from the most responsible farmers.

Green Packaging

All of our loose-leaf bags are made of paper. They are fully recyclable and can be disposed of in your recycling.

Our shipping boxes are made of recyclable corrugated cardboard. Our shipping filling materials are made of paper. These materials can be reused or recycled.
