Welcome to Georgia

Previously known as the top producer of tea for the Soviet Union, Georgia has a rich history of tea.

Decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, a collection of tea farmers have reclaimed the tea fields left untended, focusing on quality over quantity, and exprimenting with traditional and conventional tea processing methods.

Taking back tradition

By blending modern techniques with age-old practices, Georgia is making waves in the tea world and reconnecting with its rich history. Farmers often utilize traditional methods such as hand-plucking, and natural fertilizers, honoring historical practices and ensuring the production of high-quality, artisanal teas.

Through government support and private investment, small-scale tea plantations have been able to focus on high-quality tea production. The resurgence of interest in Georgian tea not only contributes to the country's agricultural diversity but also helps preserve its traditional heritage, creating economic opportunities for local communities.

Working with the environment

The mountainous terrain of Georgia's tea-growing regions contributes to the unique terroir of its teas. The elevation and soil composition vary across different tea estates, leading to distinct flavor profiles in the teas produced. The abundance of rainfall in these regions ensures adequate moisture for tea plants, minimizing the need for artificial irrigation.

Georgia's climate and location also offer protection against pests and diseases, reducing the reliance on chemical pesticides and herbicides in tea cultivation. This natural approach aligns with the growing global demand for organic and sustainable agricultural practices.
