About Urth Tea


Urth Caffé sources the finest imported black, green, white, and oolong teas from the most famous tea gardens of the world. Most are certified organic, or from traditional gardens that have been growing tea in harmony with nature for hundreds of years. Urth's herbal infusions are all our own developed recipes from fresh, hand-picked, 100% certified organic herbs. Urth expertly blends and scents all of our own fine teas to bring you the most exclusive experience.
 

First Pick Freshness

Each year, Urth works directly with a tea garden to improve quality & sustainability, and to secure the "first pick" teas, which are the best. These select teas are air-shipped directly to Urth Caffé soon after harvest for an unrivaled freshness.

Purity & Sustainable Traditions

Our Asian teas have been produced for hundreds of years the traditional way - without chemicals. Many of our tea gardens have been certified organic. Every year Urth helps others who are not certified get their certification by paying the fee. Our tea farmers have great pride in the purity of their teas, and are stewards of the land. We support fair trade and sustainable practices such as livestock programs and premium wages that improve the lives of the farmers and their families.

Unique Blending

Jilla Berkman, co-founder and Urth Tea Master, oversees the in-house blending and scenting of all Urth Caffé teas. Some tea blends remain secret, known only to Jilla. These are blended by her, and her alone. Scenting teas require the finest, all-natural ingredients such as the certified organic, cold-­pressed oil of bergamot which is used in our exclusive, organic Classic Earl Grey tea.

Select Offerings

We offer the very best selection of fine black teas - orange pekoes, broken orange pekoes, oolongs from green to mature, green teas, white teas, scented, aged teas and herbal infusions. Our organic matcha comes from a single source family tea garden that produces exclusively for Urth. Every Urth Caffé tea is exclusive to Urth. Either the source or the blending of our teas is unique, so you won’t find it anywhere else on earth.
