About Us

We work hard to exceed your expectations

Serving the Specialty Tea Market Since 1993

We began Holy Mountain Trading Company in 1990 as an import/export wholesale company operating between the United States and Guatemala, Thailand, and Sri Lanka. Our name originates from a combination of our initial location at the foot of Mount Tamalpais in Northern California and our suppliers’ settlement at the base of Lake Atitlan’s renowned volcanoes in Guatemala. After many years’ experience in outdoor sales, farmers’ markets, gift shows, and on the Internet, we developed our general interest in Asian art into an extensive collection of Yixing ware, and introduced a variety of Chinese loose-leaf teas under the tutelage of eminent tea maestro David Lee Hoffman. Holy Mountain’s continued expansion into the retail tea world attracted widespread media coverage from TIME magazine in Asia to tea reference books in the United States.

Our teas are universally acknowledged for their variety, consistency and exceptional quality. We cordially offer healthy and delicious teas and herbal tisanes for your tea-drinking pleasure.
