This blog is one part of our tea journey at Local Tea Company.

We offer remarkable tea experiences for those who want a better solution for their beverages, well being, and/or life balance.

We educate and advocate the true taste and complexity of quality loose leaf teas.

Local Tea Company creates a space in busy lives for an appreciation of the finer things in life, through tea, minus the extravagant costs or pretentiousness.

Local Tea Company previously operated the cafe in the Selby House and a tea tasting room in the Carriagehouse, both at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.  Though we started with a shop in Siesta Key Village, Local Coffee + Tea which is now The Local Bean.   And for more than 6 years we had our “Tea Tent” every Saturday at the Sarasota Downtown Farmer’s market.  You can read all about our history in great detail here.

We are now focused on our wholesale business, providing quality loose leaf teas to restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and the like.   You can find a list of our ‘Serving Partners’ here.  This is a fine list and thank you for supporting these fine local businesses.

All of our teas are available from our online shop at

Thanks for your continued support.    And so the tea journey begins for someone new.

      hi Sue…Glad you liked the tea. You can purchase Bertha Palmer Centennial Tea at any of our shops (Siesta Key, Selby Gardens or at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning) or you can purchase online at And through the end of June we are offering $1 off all Bertha Palmer Tea purchases online. Enjoy.

      Also, we are working on a tea for the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and should be ready for your fall meeting. Cheers
