About Silk Road
Silk Road Teas are grown and processed by true artisans of the leaf. They purchase most of their teas in small lots that are single origin and often handmade. It is their belief the best tea is harvested early in the spring, when the days are warming and the nights cool. In that brief harvest window, known as “before the rain” teas, the fresh and tender leaves offer nuanced flavors and tastes. These teas are limited in supply and are recognized as some of the finest teas in the world. Once plucked and processed, many of the teas are not blended, and they preserve these unique small lots for customers’ enjoyment. They find the finest varieties of white, green, oolong, black, and Pu-erh tea.
It is also worth noting that teas grown on small and specialty tea farms tend to use traditional methods of farming. As these teas are harvested in the spring before insect predation begins, the use of chemicals and pesticides is far less prevalent than on teas harvested later in the season and on larger farms. Silk Road Teas make every effort to find farms practicing natural and organic methods. To encourage and complement organic farming, their business is a certified USDA NOP Organic Handler.
