|Message from Art of Tea:
Art of Tea is a tea importer and wholesaler based in Los
Angeles, California. We hand blend and custom craft the world’s finest
organic teas and botanicals. Our teas are carefully selected directly
from growers, each one offering a unique story.
The seeds that formed the foundation of Art of Tea were first planted in
1996 when Steve Schwartz began his journey of extensive study in
preventative medicine at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico. Since
then, Art of Tea has become a leading purveyor of organic and specialty
teas. Each year Steve travels extensively, returning with rare and
unique teas from around the world.
Steve Schwartz is known by many authoritative figures in the tea
industry as a Master Tea Blender. He has blended award winning teas
under our Art of Tea brand and his blends have won awards offered under
our private label program for tea companies around the world. His drive
and passion for expanding people’s knowledge and history of tea is
captivating. Steve has lectured sold out tea blending classes for World
Tea Conventions and frequently travels to offer educational programs on
tea and tea blending.
Through his travels in Asia, India, Africa and the Middle East, Steve
and Art of Tea have developed close relationships with farmers and
distributors. These personal relationships, a hallmark at Art of Tea,
make possible the offering of top tier organic teas and select
botanicals, while ensuring that both employees and teas are treated with
great respect. At Art of Tea, our intensive care program combines
aesthetics with passion, flavor and high quality control.
