Partner Spotlight

This month we'd like to introduce you to Cindy Li of Uproot Teas.

Uproot Teas is a farm-direct, zero-waste loose leaf tea company. I partner directly with family farms to handcraft artisan teas in small batches.

For me, tea has always been comfort and connection: as the first in my family to be born outside of China, I always sought out ways to bond with my relatives and bridge cultures. In college, I wrote my senior economics paper about the commodity tea trade and learned of its roots in colonialism and imperialism, ultimately putting smallholder farmers at a disadvantage. After quitting my job in management consulting, I went to Hawai'i to work on a tea farm for a month, and launched Uproot Teas when I returned to Colorado.

What makes Uproot the BEST TEA EVER? Uproot Teas logo

  • Real leaves that you can see. Never any additives nor flavoring, nothing hiding in a toxic teabag!
  • Sustainably sourced from farms. We pay our farm partners 20-100x fair trade wage to support regenerative agriculture.
  • 100% zero waste company. All of our packaging is safe for home composting!

Lastly, thanks for supporting me, a first-generation Chinese American who is excited to share a part of my family's tea-drinking culture with a modern twist!

Love, Cindy
Uproot Teas Founder & Tea-EO
