The concept behind Tributary Tea Company began brewing in our minds over the course of many weekly hikes into the mountainous region of Taipei, Taiwan. Often we would carry a lovingly worn, clay pot and make a brief stop at a temple on our way, to chat with the monks and humbly ask for some boiling water. Once we ended up at our destination we would brew a few pots of gaoshan oolong and comment on the joys of living in Taiwan and the fantastic teas grown and produced there. Since those days on the trail we have refined our knowledge of Taiwanese tea and built up a community of producers and friends that we trust to consistently provide phenomenal teas. We aim to supply the most seasonal leaves we can find in an effort to share our deep appreciation for these wonderful products. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!
