About Us

                   

 


We handcraft our tea in small batches at the time of order.
This is the beginning of our ceremony of loose-leaf tea.

 

 "Drink tea and nourish life; with the first sip, joy; with the second sip, satisfaction; with the third sip, peace."
 
Love & Tea Company was founded in 2006 in the heart of the Green Mountains of Vermont by Certified Herbalist, Jen Lashua.
Jen hand-crafts each tea blend from a selection of vibrant herbs in small batches with great attention to the balance of the herbs – knowing that others will be brewing this tea for enjoyment and the natural health promoting benefits.
Our teas are handcrafted in small batches. We use only organically grown or ethically
wildcrafted tea and herbs for our blends. Each tea is hand blended and hand packed with great care.
We keep the size of our herbs larger, which is to say, we do not grind them down to a powder, this preserves more of the flavor, color, aroma and nutritional aspects of the tea.
Our Woman's Wellness Teas are blended to nourish women through the stages of pregnancy and beyond into menopause.
We source our herbs, spices and teas from organic growers who respect the Earth. We are committed to preserving and nurturing our natural world and we strive to keep toxic pesticides and chemicals out of the soil, water, air and our bodies.
Our Green and Black Teas are sourced from an exclusive tea importer that we have carefully selected through a mindful process of finding someone who fits perfectly with our standards and commitment to protecting the environment. We are very happy to work directly with our tea importer who provides, what we feel, are some of the very best organic teas from around the world.
