Greetings from Winterwoods Tea Company!
At Winterwoods Tea Company we're passionate about creating delicious, nourishing loose leaf tea blends using the finest locally farmed and wild foraged organic herbs. We begin by sourcing our ingredients from small, sustainable farms and companies who support our values and we hand-mix all of our original tea blends in the heart of the Pacific Northwest in beautiful Spokane, Washington. Our tea is carried at natural foods stores, gift boutiques and coffee/tea shops across the United States and we also sell through local farmers markets as well as online.
We believe that tea should be healing and nourishing and that's why you'll never find synthetic ingredients, preservatives, artificial flavors or artificial colors, refined sugars, sweeteners or other additives in our teas. As a “farm to tea cup” company, our original blends contain only organic herbs, spices, tea leaves, dried fruit bits and sometimes pure extracts. All of our blends are gluten and dairy-free.
At Winterwoods Tea Company we are committed to the following:
• Ingredients sourced as locally as possible
• Handcrafted in small batches
• Freshly blended, sealed, and sold within 30 days of packaging
• Certified organic or wild foraged ingredients
• No preservatives, pesticides or artificial ingredients

SouleMama: Since the last time you were featured on SouleMama, in what ways has your business grown or changed? Is there anything new you'd like to tell us about?
Tirza: Since our last SouleMama feature, our wholesale operations have exploded. We’ve partnered with natural foods distributor Azure Standard and etsy Wholesale has been an important avenue for getting our products into independent gifts shops all over the country.
As our wholesale operations have grown, our participation at local farmers markets and events have slowed down but we still enjoy connecting directly with our customers. Last fall we were also selected as a “Top Pick” in an international Kickstarter campaign that allowed us to raise $35,000 which we used to build our own commercial tea kitchen in Spokane, Washington. We're in the middle of our second Kickstarter campaign to launch our brand new line of Pacific Northwest blends. These four new blends include northwest grown, organic ingredients such as wild cedar tips, juniper berries and cranberries, and are exclusively available on Kickstarter until October 15.
This weekend, Winterwoods Tea Company is generously offering the following gift to ONE lucky SouleMama reader:
Two of our brand new herbals blends (part of the Pacific Northwest line): Wildwood Cedar and Mount Hood Hops along with a tea infuser.
Wildwood Cedar: Wildwood Cedar is a delicious woodsy blend with deep, robust flavor. The combination of wild cedar tips, peppermint and cinnamon bark work together to create a very unique and flavorful herbal blend. Ingredients: Organic cinnamon bark, organic papaya leaf, organic peppermint, organic raspberry leaf, organic wild cherry bark, wild cedar tips, organic licorice root, organic chicory, organic cloves, organic sarsaparilla, organic fennel, pure extracts.
Mount Hood Hops: A wonderful sleepy time or evening tea, Mount Hood Hops makes use of the Mount Hood variety of hops and pairs it with chamomile, dried pears and vanilla. Medicinally used as a sleep aid, hops make a wonderful herbal tea and this blend is mild and sweet. Ingredients: Organic lemon balm, organic skullcap, organic passion flower, organic hops, organic valerian root, organic chamomile, pure extract, dried pears.
