Partners & Impact

A Commitment to Good Will and Social Responsibility

In 1992 The Republic of Tea sparked a Tea Revolution and has since grown to become the leading purveyor of premium teas. With that growth comes the responsibility to contribute positively to society on a global scale.

Impacting Social Change on a Global Scale

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 impactful nonprofit organizations, transforming everyday purchases into a force for good around the world.

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
Desmond Tutu
