At Yerba Buena Tea Co. we hand blend loose leaf organic tea in small batches, focusing on pure ingredients without any flavorings.


Yerba Buena Tea Company founders Chad and Grace Smith have combined their passion for loose-leaf artisan teas with their love of San Francisco to create a premium wellness tea brand worthy of the legacy of the City by the Bay. The Smiths hand-craft small-batch blends with a wellness philosophy that promotes healthy living through whole, organic ingredients and a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

The settlement of San Francisco was originally called Yerba Buena for the aromatic plant that grew along its shores. It means “good herb” and our loose leaf teas honor the name. Robust and adventurous, just like the dreams that built this golden city. San Francisco is not Yerba Buena anymore, but its pioneering spirit lives on in the teas that bear its maiden name.
