Our Garden Direct series is a carefully curated selection of single-origin seasonal teas. 

Each year we travel around the world to connect with esteemed tea makers and select the season’s most outstanding micro-lots. They are packaged fresh at origin and sent via air freight to our warehouse in Milwaukee, WI so we can share these most cherished teas at their peak freshness.

Each tea tells a unique story and invites you to share in the discovery of new places and exceptional flavors.

The teas and botanicals we source for Garden Direct are not the usual commodity types. Less than 2% of the global tea production meets the quality and the provenance we import. True teas are like wine, so place, season of harvest, and terroir matters.
