The Republic of Tea embraces the ancient Chinese philosophy of Ta shun – the Great Harmony. Ta shun is alive when people naturally care about the world and depend on one another for the well-being of the whole.
It manifests itself in collective concern and the aspiration to seek opportunities, initiatives and actions that will better the conditions of both humans and the planet. In short, to provide good works, render goodwill.
We are honored to render goodwill by developing teas and tea-inspired items to support organizations that make a difference in the world. The Republic of Tea is also a committed member of the international Ethical Tea Partnership.
|The Republic of Tea has donated to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Disaster Relief. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters in the US and worldwide.||Learn more|
