We dreamt of a place that tea lovers, connoisseurs, and amateurs alike could come together to explore the world of tea. Inspired by pure passion and a respect for authenticity, Tealyra was born. We strive to be a company that will provide you with what you're looking for, help you learn something new, try something new, and discover something new about the second most consumed beverage in the world.
In 2010, Tealyra was birthed out of admiration and absolute love for all things tea. We started by creating unique blends using the finest quality teas and ingredients, after trial and error, tasting and testing our blends were absolutely delectable! We believe tea brings people together, it can bring a moment of calm to your day when you need it, the health properties tea is known for, or a boost of energy during your midday slump… we are firm believers that herbs as medicine are not only powerful, but they also work!
We take pride in our high standard of quality; offering authentic true teas direct from origin, organic exclusives, a broad variety, and our own unique blends- created by innovation and the promise to deliver excellence in serving you our finest products.
We are a team of tea lovers! Our hands are matcha-stained; we drink tea, touch tea, talk tea and study tea- all day. From our founders, to those of us who pack your online orders and greet you at our store front location, we sincerely share your passion for tea and stand behind our product to offer you the best there is.
We thank you for choosing Tealyra, we are honored to serve you, and share our passion for tea and excellence with you!
We proudly stand out as a shining star in the galaxy of tea!
Our name Tealyra represents what we believe to be the brightest set of stars in the tea world, our vast collection of the best teas- our very own "tea constellation" as it were. Lyra, a famous constellation, is one of the 88 constellations recognized by the International Astronomical Union, and is incredibly bright.
In Greek Mythology, Lyra represents the tortoise shell lyre of Orpheus, who was a famous musician and poet. Orpheus was known for his incredible musical talent and his ability to charm even the stones with his beautiful music. When he died, his lyre was thrown into a river and Zeus sent an eagle to retrieve the lyre and placed both of them permanently in the sky.
Take some time to gaze upon our beautiful constellation of teas and let us charm you with our incredible ability to provide you with the world's best tea, with out of this world customer service!
"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet".
