LMTC strives to find quality teas
LMTC strives to find quality teas produced by small-scale farmers worldwide. LMTC walked amidst the ancient tea trees on Jingmai Mountain in Yunnan, China. The leaves from these tea trees provide some of our premium varieties – Heritage and Jasmine green, Red Elephant and Sangamon Sunset Red and Jasmine Puerh.
Our visits to China, Taiwan, and the island of Java, Indonesia give us great confidence in the tea we offer. These trips allow us to build a sustainable, organic source of quality teas from farms working at the village scale. Despite being relatively inaccessible due to their remote, wildland settings, we have witnessed the establishment of a workforce – pickers, processers, and farmhands – helping drive local economic development.
We continue to source new artisan teas and are pleased to feature four Colombian teas – our first true teas from South America – including an excellent black tea with bold flavor, a smooth green tea, the Andean Princess consisting of a black tea with Isabella grape skin and Andean raspberry, and Cloud Forest Green with pear guava and soursop.
