How'd we get here?

A short story about us:

Snake River Tea was a dream over 15 years in the making. After searching out as much education as possible in the form of tea and business boot camps, tea education classes, books, expos and a whole lot of planning, the dream became our reality. We opened our first and only physical location in downtown Boise, Idaho on the Grove in November 2014. We know how amazing a great cup of tea is and we want to share that feeling with our customers—life is just too short to drink bad tea!

After YEARS of loving our home on the Grove in Boise, we made the difficult decision in 2019 to close our doors and open up 100% online, which is where you'll find us today!

Our objective is still to provide every customer with a wonderful cup of tea. We manage that by offering premium loose leaf teas, each with specific, recommended, brewing at their perfect water temperature and steep time.

We work to find teas that will entice people from all walks of life, from the “new-to-tea” to the tea aficionado, so that we can provide a great experience for everyone. While we carry all of the “must have” traditional teas, we’ve also put our blood, sweat and tears into creating unique blends that you’ll only find in our online store.
