Hello friend, I’m Gus. I created and operate this sourcing project.
For many years now, Rivers & Lakes Tea has been providing specialty leaves to our tea community from small family operations I’ve been fortunate to personally connect with during trips to Asia. It fills me with great purpose to assist people’s appreciation of this ancient tradition by creating unique sourcing channels and providing small batch, highest quality productions that are supportive of each tea family and the continuation of their heritage. These families are all dear friends and it gives me great pleasure to tell their stories, document their tea production methodology, and delight in their outstanding craftsmanship with you.
