What's an 'Eco' Tea?
Eco comes from the Greek word oikos, which means home. Ecology is the study of the home. Economy is the management of the home. At EcoTeas, we like to think of home on three levels: the body, the household, and the planet. That's why an Eco Tea is healthy, affordable, and sustainable.
The EcoTeas Story
We started EcoTeas in the year 2000 in the kitchen of our house in Ashland, Oregon. We came together as three best friends with a shared vision: to create a grassroots tea company that supports organic agriculture, fair trade business practices, and healthy living.
We work to bring you the highest quality teas at the best possible prices. In addition to providing 'green' livelihoods for our farmers and ourselves, we strive to inspire simple, healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
EcoTeas 'unsmoked' yerba mate is dried with warm air instead of smoke for a lighter, cleaner taste. Our reforestation program is providing shade, protecting soil. and restoring biodiversity.
