In the heart of Albuquerque, between the lively downtown and historic Old Town, New Mexico Tea Company was established. Founders David and Dianne Edwards began this flavorful journey on November 1, 2006.
Starting small, the company has since grown into a beloved destination for tea enthusiasts. Our tea shop, located at the scenic intersection of Mountain Road and Twelfth Street, offers a peaceful retreat for those seeking a moment of calm.
At New Mexico Tea Company, our love for tea knows no bounds. We source the finest loose-leaf teas from around the world; some of which are selected by our team, and others are imported or obtained from fellow tea experts.
Our goal is to share the experience of tea with our local community and beyond, promoting the comfort and joy found in each cup. Whether you're a New Mexico native or a visitor, we welcome you to explore our wide range of tea and tea-related products.
If you need assistance or have any questions, our friendly team is ready to help on our customer service page. Let's create a more delightful world together, one cup of tea at a time.
