Organic tea based in Basalt
The company’s founder, Richard Rosenfeld, obtained his passion for teas after an extensive business travel in Asia. Surprised by the incomparable quality of the teas around and wondering why the same was not available back at home, Richard, with the intent of sourcing the best tea leaves in the world, had begun developing relationships with the organic tea farmers of the Asian countries which he visited.
He got back in 2004, and founded Two Leaves and a Bud – getting its name from the actual physical characteristics of a blossoming tea plant. The company’s headquarters is located in Basalt, Colorado.
Two Leaves and a Bud offers only the finest of teas harvested from some of the most outstanding tea growing regions in the world, and is one of the first few companies in the US to offer organic teas in compostable pyramid-shaped tea bags.

For the environment
Two Leaves and a Bud shares the tea lovers’ concern for the environment in many ways. Firstly, their tea sachets are made with a plant-based material, which means that it will eventually biodegrade in a moist and hot compost and will not end up messing up the environment.
While their tea sachets are individually wrapped to keep the tea as fresh as possible, the clear sleeves in which they are packaged are designed to decompose. You can read all about their eco-friendly packaging on their website.
