Our teas are derived from one of the world’s oldest herbal traditions: that of Armenia, an ancient civilization at the crossroads of East and West. The Armenian highlands, located in the mountainous region between the Black and Caspian Seas, host pristine alpine habitats that produce an abundance of wild herbs. It is from this pure source that Authentic Teas’ tisanes, or herbal teas, are produced.
We ensure all our teas are wild-crafted, meaning the herbs are harvested sustainably in the wild and then processed entirely by hand. Harvesters are carefully trained in herb collection and handling techniques in accordance with Armenian herbal tea crafting tradition. Blending the best of ancient and modern methods, we derive our herbal blends from medieval Armenian manuscripts.
The tea crafting takes place in indigenous village areas, where most of the economic benefits generated are returned to local artisans, helping ensure that a lifestyle and culture grounded in two thousand years of tradition continues. Steeped in millennia of tea excellence, no other herbal tea can provide a more authentic, more outstanding tea experience.
“Even before tasting the tea, one smell of the contents and I knew this was going to be something special.”
“I love the tea. We make 3 or 4 pots a day and drink it iced at work.”
“The tea arrived today. It was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so very much.”
“I can only drink decaffeinated herbal teas. You have such a great selection!”
“Finding these herbal teas was especially important to me. I have a fairly new food allergy which does not allow me to consume anything which is not organic.”
We drink this every night - it's such a delight after dinner. It's "real Armenian mint tea" unlike the ones that refer to themselves as such but aren't really from Armenia nor as good as this tea.
“I purchased your herbal teas as a gift for my brother and his wife who are big tea drinkers.
They were impressed with the quality!

“I don't even like tea, and I LOVE this stuff!!!”
“Love Your herbal teas - Ani Blend is the best of course!”

Exceptionally great herbal teas. I'm not sure where else you can find this kind of high quality wild-crafted teas.
“The Armenian Blend is OUTSTANDING! I give samples to everyone I know.”
