Our Story

Wissotzky: born when a man
named Wolf took to the sea.


It was 1849 and Klonimus Wolf Wissotzky liked tea. But he wanted to love it. He tried every tea in Moscow, but they all fell short. So he set sail on an unending quest to find the world’s best ingredients.


Later, the Wissotzky Tea Company was the exclusive purveyor to a real tea snob—the Russian emperor. To satisfy the royal whims, and our own passions, we set out on expeditions to every corner of the earth looking for new flavors.





Since then we’ve moved our operations and won numerous awards from the connoisseurs of Europe and Asia. But mostly we’ve been choosing teas, blending them, cupping, and blending them again until they’re teas we can truly love.

This unwavering commitment to quality has been driving us for over five generations, and we do it all so every customer’s cup tastes remarkable.
