From the mountainous region of Colombia, in an area steeped in biodiversity, along the western slope of the Andes, is the Bitaco tea estate. The gentle mist from the mountains, rich soil, and ample rainfall all stimulate the growth of the tea bushes, producing a tea with unique characteristics.

Bitaco Tea owns over 200 acres of tea plants that are cultivated at over 6,000 feet above sea level in the region of Choco. This region enjoys a high rainfall and has exceptional biodiversity. The tea gardens are located next to a thriving, protected rain forest, the Bitaco Regional Forest Reserve, where there is a wide diversity of flora and fauna: 256 bird species, 28 amphibian species, 23 reptile species and 772 species of plants. The garden, located near the Equator, enjoys a consistent climate which results in a bountiful production of tasty, delicate tea-tips that are picked and processed throughout the year.

Bitaco Tea not only cultivates exceptional teas, they also are committed to their community. They created the Agricola Himalaya Foundation to develop and improve programs focusing on education, especially for local children. Activities focus on the improvement of infrastructure, recreational opportunities, local culture and access to technology. See more at: Agricola Himalaya Foundation

This well-rolled, large leaf green tea is low in astringency with sweet, nutty flavors. The liquor is clear and has a bright yellow/jade color.


Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2 minutes.

Green Tea for people who do not like green tea

I love black teas!

This green tea, which I made by soaking 30 grams overnight in 64 oz of water to make iced tea.

Color is very good after I strained it.

The tea is very flavorful, I don't get the nutty notes, what I get is an under-taste of pineapple with a mild astringency around the sides of the tongue.

I would place this on a par with a very high end Japanese Sencha Tea, maybe better.

In any case, I cannot wait for the weather to cool down and make a pot of it hot.

One of S&V green tea favorites.

I'm partial to black teas and only beginning to explore and appreciate greens. Thus far this is one of my favorite S&V favorite greens. It has a pleasant, citris-like tone.

a lovely afternoon tea

The leafy green columbian is perfect for the afternoon as it is not very astringent. I did notice that this tea needs to be brewed at the full 180 degrees to get lovely pale green color without any bitterness.

What a pleasant suprise!

Didn't expect much from a tea from Columbia but I was very pleased with this selection. Very smooth without a hint of bitterness. As good as many much more expensive greens from China and Japan. Will definitely buy more if it's still available in the future.
