Our Story

Tîma means "heart" in the native language of Rwanda, where most of our teas come from. Tîma Tea is the line of loose leaf teas under the parent company, 3 Mountains, LLC, based in Asheville, North Carolina.
All of our products are sourced with the highest regard for the people and environment. We specifically do not use tea bags because most bags contain a plastic carcinogen and also degrade the quality and flavor of the tea, and create more waste and depletion for our planet.
Purchase online and in any of our partner businesses throughout the U.S. and even in Europe!
 
You can even find Tîma Tea used in partner tea blends and in beverages like beer, and our very own non-alcoholic Silverback Carbonated Tea.
Committed to conscious commerce and making a difference in the world, from crop to cup, we invite you to consider visiting Rwanda on our annual trip.
 

Why Rwanda?

When our founder, Sara, learned about the 1994 Genocide of Rwanda it was six years after the tragic series of events, when nearly 1 million people were killed in 100 days. It broke her heart open and helped her start on her personal healing journey and when she landed on Rwandan soil for the first time in 2009, she knew she was home.
Sara is a TedX 2019 Speaker and shares more of her story in this short talk.

Learn more about how we got our start in Rwanda through our nonprofit foundation, Africa Healing Exchange.

Why Tea?

 The camellia sinensis plant is one that heals and energizes, and Rwanda provides the perfect growing climate. The business and cooperatives 3 Mountains partners with support 100,000 people! Come meet some of them on our next Crop to Cup Tour. Some of our teas are winning awards through the North American Tea Association. This is NOT a charity product but it certainly is changing a lot of lives!
