Metolius Tea’s Do-Good Ethos

At Metolius Tea, we define success as supporting people, respecting the planet, and earning sustainable profits, commonly known as the triple bottom line.

​ We support our team by co-creating a kindness-forward culture, prioritizing work-life balance, providing an education stipend, and increasing team benefits, including paid time off, retirement savings, and profit sharing.

We support our local community by paying our team members to volunteer in the SMART Reading program.

We respect the environment through a multitude of small choices, from eco-friendly packaging to sourcing from small organic farms. At great cost to ourselves, we refuse to bottle our chai in plastic.

We earn sustainable profits by supporting an outstanding product line with smooth operations and attuned customer service. Through our Tea for Good program, we donate a portion of our profits to children’s education in tea growing regions.

Vision + Mission

Our vision is to be the most respected wholesaler and online retailer of hand-crafted teas. To enrich the lives of our farmers, customers, team, and communities. ​

Our mission is to sell delicious, beautiful teas to our customers and to deliver our promises with precision and warmth.

Ecosystem Business Model

Core Values


We lean into ethics, accountability, and win-win relationships. We approach our business with both feminine and feminist values, seeking new ways of being in business that allow us to thrive to our fullest potentials.


We consider connection - with our international sourcing community, within our company, and with our customers - the most important output generated by a healthy business.


We are a distinctly American tea company.
We don’t exploit, ape, or exoticize Chinese, Indian, British, or any other cultures. We are mindful of our language and respectful to the cultures and geographies connected with our ingredients.
