About The Persimmon TreeĀ®

Simply put, tea is one of life’s rewarding pleasures.  It makes us feel better by giving us a relaxing escape from life’s hectic pace. 

This 5,000-year-old drink is here to stay.  It is rapidly becoming more popular as the news spreads of tea's many health benefits, and how rewarding it can be to treat yourself to a flavorful brew, any time of the day.

A cup of tea can wake you up in the morning, compliment your afternoon, or take you away to a restful place in the evening. The tea-brewing ritual is one that can be therapeutic, enjoyable, social, and even sacred.

The Persimmon Tree® offers our customers some of the world's finest organic teas and botanicals. Not only are most of our fresh high quality teas from around the globe hand-blended and organically grown, some of our teas are also fair trade, ensuring fair working conditions, fair wages, and a better life for tea workers from countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

At The Persimmon Tree®, our mission is simple: to enrich people's lives through the pleasure of tea.


It is obvious that America is facing a serious health epidemic. Diabetes, heart disease, and obesity are threatening the lives and lifestyles of too many people.  Although tea is not the sole answer to these conditions, the path to recovery depends on small, positive changes. Replacing a cup of soda or coffee with a cup of tea, daily, will prove the benefits.


We, at The Persimmon Tree®, contribute to the sustainability of our planet. Where possible, we use recycled and recyclable materials in our shipping supplies and printed materials. Using recycled products increases the demand for recycled material, which increases the rate of recyclability. Our passion is to instigate and experience positive change through the simple things, and we encourage our customers to do the same.

Happy steeping!
