Sustainabili-TEA

. December 31, 2014.

Aubrey and Jeremy Lopatin’s decade-long mission to find the world’s best organic teas and deliver them as sustainably as possible—through backyard compostable packaging and green shipping alternatives—has given their business, Arbor Teas, huge momentum. The next phase in their mission includes the launch of an organic tea farm—with 600 tea plants germinated and grown in the couple’s Ann Arbor backyard. The tea farm will provide Arbor Teas with domestically grown product and opportunities for community education. Initially, the farm will feature a 30’ x 150’ hoop house powered by solar energy and warmed geothermally in the winter. Down the line, the Lopatins hope to grow their business to include an on-farm learning center, ready-to-drink beverages, and an Arbor Teas café.
