Our Mission: Honest-tea and Integri-tea.

It’s been a long time since we fell in love with quality loose leaf teas in 2006. Back then, it was hard to find organic, healthful teas with truly transportive properties. And so we started sourcing them ourselves! We promise every loose leaf tea and blend on our menu has been curated with honesty and integrity. All of our teas are allergen-free. Most are organic and certified Kosher, too. (Just look for those designations on their individual pages.) When you pour water over our tea leaves, you’ll immediately sense their natural, lively personalities. You’ll taste quality, freshness, and flavor. We started our family-owned loose leaf tea brand to share the affordable luxury of a fine cup of tea. Welcome to our family.

Our Vision: Minimizing our footprint. Maximizing your bliss.

Eco-friendly packaging has come a long way since we started our loose leaf tea company! We respect the natural world as much as we respect the nature of teas. So we’re continually moving towards more sustainable packaging and shipping practices. All of our full-sized loose leaf teas and our Essentials Collection come in compostable pouches. Our tea samplers come in fun, reusable tins arranged in recyclable kraft paper gift boxes. We blend beauty and sustainability more and more every day.

Noushin Ebrani

Founder & CEO

"I discovered the healthful joys of fresh, quality loose leaf tea after a few challenges with my health: I was diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disease in my early thirties. Then I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. During this time, I started looking into alternative medicines and healthy lifestyle practices. It’s no surprise that many of these explorative paths led to tea.

I quickly experienced the transformative health benefits of drinking tea every day. (We share all about top tea benefits in this post.) But I soon discovered the mental and emotional boosts I got from my building tea rituals, too. A morning cup of organic green tea charges my focus and energy without making me jittery. In the afternoon, one of our wellness tea blends keeps me mindful through whatever comes my way. In the evening, I have to have a cup of peppermint tea to help me unwind. (It helps that our peppermint tea is of the highest quality, sourced from Oregon!)

I founded Heavenly Tea Leaves in 2006 to share the joy and simple pleasure of a good cup of tea. I call our teas “affordable luxury” because their potent flavors and aromas can truly transform our atmosphere, attention, and intention. I hope they inspire you to take a bit of time from your busy life to take care of yourself and those you love. That you drink and share them in ease, peace, and good health."


Noushin's favorite green tea right now: Pure Green - Clean, and refreshing. It gives her a boost of energy and mental clarity. I especially love it in the early afternoon when I start feeling sluggish.

Noushin's favorite blend right now: Turmeric Ginger - It feels healthy and cleansing while satisfying my sweet tooth!

"I'm a perfectionist—all the way down to the little things in life. I’ve found tea to be one of those overlooked drinks that can make large, positive changes in your day to day, your emotions, and your health. And so while I got my bachelors degree from New York University’s Steinhardt for Music Business in 2015, I was thrilled to join my mother full time at Heavenly Tea Leaves only a year later.

Tea is more commonly considered a feminine beverage. But I’ve found that’s the furthest thing from true! Tea is certainly a healing, soft, gentle beverage that soothes. But it’s also stimulating, energetic, and flavorful. Tea offers a wide spectrum of flavors and aromas that waft and layer together. And the deeper you fall into the world of tea, the more surprises you find.

So if you’re new to this world—I suggest that you think of our teas like you would fine wine, gourmet chocolate, or artisanal coffee. Some are certainly delicate and relaxing. But others deliver serious flavor and body-boosting properties. No matter which you’re looking for, I’m excited to support your journey of discovery."


My favorite tea right now: Jasmine Pearl - I consider myself a tea purist (although I enjoy non-traditional teas as well). This light and aromatic jasmine green delivers everything I want from my tea: sustained energy, calm, and truly delicious flavor. 

My favorite blend right now: Refresh - I love the flavor, aroma, and effects of all different types of mint and this blend features peppermint and eucalyptus, which shine together. I specifically love it when my sinuses are clogged up, as it helps clear everything up!
