Around the world in a single sip
When our tea master David DeCandia became the Tea Ambassador of Sri Lanka, we figured we were doing something right. David works directly with private, family-owned tea estates to cultivate the best tea leaves from Sri Lanka, China, Thailand, Japan and India — then we hand-blend them locally for maximum freshness.
Tea is the most widely consumed prepared beverage on Earth. And The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf ® is here to bring you the perfect version of the world’s favorite drink
The liquid gold in your cup began its journey thousands of miles away, on the lush tea plantations of Sri Lanka, Kenya, China, Japan, Thailand and India. We work directly with tea growers in these regions in handcrafting varieties of tea that meet our exacting specifications. Because of our standards for quality, taste and heritage, you’re sure to enjoy the very best whole-leaf teas and tea drinks available anywhere.
On the road to tea perfection, we insist on staying connected to the harvest by purchasing directly from the growers - without middlemen, wholesalers, or importer-exporters. It’s not only the right thing to do, it allows us to source and deliver the world’s finest, most distinctive teas.
By staying connected to the people for whom tea is a livelihood, we go beyond fair wages by giving back to the plantations, estates and communities that grow our delicious tea by supporting local education and health-care programs. Cultivating these close ties benefits everyone; from the local growers to our global customers who get to taste the benefits of our partnerships.
