Our Story

At Russian River Tea Company we create tea and deliciousness. We are thrilled to bring you a collection of tea offerings like no other. Our generous collection includes many traditional teas, as well as scores of unique custom and exotic blends, to please and titillate any palate. Whether you're a tea afficionado, or just beginning to explore the wondrous world of tea, you've come to the right place. We promise you'll be thrilled, too!

Tea parties aren’t just for little kids. Steep a great tea, green, black, or white, maybe a tisane for fruity refreshment, then just add family and friends and you’ll have a delicious time.

After 25 years in corporate retail management, owner Holly Hunt, with a lifelong love of tea, steeped herself in bold and distinctive brews, then combined all that retail experience with her fascination and love of tea into a sweet little shop in Healdsburg, California.

Each proprietary tea is brewed, tasted and selected for their distinct flavors to enhance your tea experience. We work with professional blenders to create our teas that you can find only at Russian River Tea Company.

Holly visits Russian River Rose Company, and with her own hands, picks the rose petals that are blended into the twenty teas that include the local roses.

Local flower growers provide the lavenders and the mints that create such teas as “Lavender Lady Grey” and “LaLa Lavender,” and “Pacific Coast Mint” and “My Mother’s Garden.” If the plants aren’t perfect, they don’t make it into the bag.

Please shop our website, or better yet, come visit us to find a truly unique range of teas.

When you get to Healdsburg, we’ll introduce you to these most-interesting teas, as well as offer our full range of local, handcrafted chocolates. We also carry linen tea towels, a full array of tea accouterments, and locally created soaps and candles.

Remember, Life is better with tea.
