Thinking about organic tea - here is why you should purchase from Embassy House.

Discerning customers at hotels, spas, cruise ships, tea houses and at home, consider our tea most pleasing and rank it consistently with the world’s best.
Our organic loose tea has a better price per taste ratio, as whole tea leaves are harvested and not adulterated with tea fillers and dust.
We have third party authenticated traceability for genetics, plant growth, leaf processing to brewed beverage. Additionally, farmers and processors receive livable wages certified by third parties.
Customers can visit and tour the tea farms.
Our tea is grown, processed and shipped directly from the farms to the U.S. customers maintaining quality and freshness of teas. These teas do not travel through tea auctions in London. Hence, the loose tea reaches the drinking public much faster, weeks versus years, again maintaining quality and freshness of product.
