Bill and Judy Larkin founded The Larkin Tea Co. in 2001. Initially the main focus was on educational programs but over the years the sale of high-quality loose leaf teas has become an important aspect of the business.
Passionate about tea, both Bill and Judy are certified tea specialists. Their teas are sourced from all over the globe and Judy has travelled extensively visiting tea estates worldwide to inspect the entire production process.
“We buy in small quantities to ensure the tea you purchase is as fresh as possible and hasn’t been sitting on the shelf for months. It is for that same reason we don’t carry a huge selection of teas.”
The Larkin’s are committed to selling the freshest and highest quality teas at a reasonable price. Even the simple package was designed to keep prices down.
“We want the customer to be spending their money on the tea and not on the fancy packaging.”
The Larkin Tea Company is dedicated to introducing people to tea and continuing to discover new varieties to share with their clients.
FEATURED! - Cinnamon Apple Fruit Blend
FRUIT BLENDS TEA
The heady fragrance of ripening apples that fills the air along the Shenandoah Valley on a sunny autumn day and mugs of steaming hot cider is what comes to mind when you savor our Cinnamon Apple tea. This fruit blend starts with rooibos, a South African plant that is high in antioxidants and beneficial alpha hydroxyl acids to which we’ve added pieces of real apple, hibiscus petals, raisins, rose hip peels and plum pieces all enhanced with a dash of cinnamon. Naturally caffeine-free, this fruit blend is enjoyable at any time of the day. Providing that warm, sense of well-being when sipped hot in the colder month, it’s also a light, refreshing ice tea in the summer.
