Confucius Tea Quote
” Tea tempers the spirits and harmonizes the mind,
dispels lassitude and relieves fatigue,
awakens thoughts and prevents drowsiness,
lightens or refreshes the body,
and clears the perceptive faculties.”
Local Tea Company promotes local products and services, protects local environments, and celebrates local treasures. Great things start at the local level. Therefore, it is no surprise our motto is “Sip Locally.”
Three times more money is injected into the local economy when people buy from local businesses rather than national chains. Local businesses put their money back into the local economy. Above all, both employees and vendors contribute to a cycle of support that strengthens a community. Sip Locally.
Our locally inspired, loose leaf teas celebrate Sarasota. For example, our most popular tea, Selby Select, is inspired by Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. In addition, Selby was our home base from 2007 until 2016. We have created teas celebrating other parts of Selby Gardens, including our Little Monkey Fruit Tea and our Secret Garden Green Tea.
Other locally inspired loose leaf teas include…
- Mote Beach Tea was created for Mote Marine Laboratory.
- Mable’s Rose Rooibos celebrating Mable Ringling’s Rose Garden at The Ringling.
- Van Wezel’s Anniversa-Tea for the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center.
- Siesta Tea for the Best Beach in the World.
- Lido Tea for the home of St. Armands Circle.
We created a tea for the Edison Ford Winter Estates in Fort Meyers. You will love the sweetness of our Edison Ford Fruit Tea. Local Tea Company organized the Celebrating Sarasota Collection of Teas. We are working on more clever creations of loose leaf tea blends.
Join us in practicing “Sip Locally” throughout our community. We love Sarasota, and we love sharing our community with the many visitors we meet every day. In conclusion, we appreciate all the support, and we will continue working hard to contribute to our local community.
