WHAT DOES THE NAME ‘TEA FOR THREE’ MEAN?
THIS TEA COMPANY BEGAN OUT OF A DESIRE TO PROVIDE A PRODUCT THAT WOULD BE:
1. GOOD FOR THE BODY (HEALTHY)
2. GOOD FOR THE EARTH (SUSTAINABLE)
3. GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE THAT HELP FARM THEM AROUND THE WORLD (FAIR)

IT IS THESE THREE PRINCIPLES THAT GUIDE AND SHAPE THE TEA FOR THREE BRAND.

DO YOU GROW YOUR TEA IN NEW YORK CITY?
CAMELLIA SINENSIS (TEA PLANT) IS MAINLY CULTIVATED IN TROPICAL AND SUBTROPICAL CLIMATES, IN AREAS WITH AT LEAST 50 INCHES OF RAINFALL A YEAR. NEW YORK CITY DOES NOT MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS, SO NO, UNFORTUNATELY, WE CANNOT GROW OUR TEA HERE. INSTEAD, WE ARE PARTNERED WITH A ORGANIC AND RAINFOREST ALLIANCE CERTIFIED COMPANY THAT IS BASED IN PORTLAND, OREGON. THEY ARE CONNECTED TO VARIOUS TEA FARMS AROUND THE WORLD. WE SOURCE OUR TEA LEAVES, HERBS, AND SPICES FROM THEM AND THEN FORMULATE, MIX, AND BAG OUR BLENDS HERE IN NEW YORK CITY.
