Lifelong friends Stefan Schachter, Brendan Girard, and Joseph Chermesino founded ECOTEAS in Ashland, Oregon in the year 2000. ECOTEAS remains privately owned and operated by the original founders.
At the end of 2014 we hired Jateshwar Das as our warehouse manager. Jateshwar brings a deep ethic of diligence and care to everything he does. We are grateful to have him on our team!

ENERGY AND WATER:
We offset our office energy use with 100% clean, renewable wind power through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
For every ounce of water you use to make our tea, we work in partnership with BEF to put an ounce of water back into the Sevenmile Creek, which is part of the Klamath River Watershed in southern Oregon.
