When you drink our teas, you are casting yourself in a story. From the Tea Mountains, and Taoist Temples of The Far East, to the Ski Mountains, and Majestic Valleys of Colorado— we are bringing you the highest quality, hand picked, hand processed, agrochemical free teas, made with love, from harvest to home.
We love to put an emphasis on wild, old growth, and high altitude teas, that can be found in their natural, and bio diverse environments, as opposed to farmed in sub par terroir. We want to introduce everyone to the simple luxury of a quality cup of true tea, as tea of this beauty and caliber need no sweetener or added sugars, etc— allowing you to interact directly with the nutrition, and spirit, of the tea plant itself.
My name is Scotty, and I am the founder of Wuji Tea Co. I was born in New York, and grew up in Connecticut, studied Philosophy at CU in Boulder, then moved to Spain to work as a chef, and onward to the San Francisco Bay Area, where I discovered Gongfu Cha, and Taoism. From the Bay Area, I went on to China to study tea under a tea master in Shanghai, and then backpacked through the mountains, to arrive and live on top of a mountain at a 1400 year old Taoist Temple of the Dragons Gate Yang sect of the Complete Reality School of Taoism, where I studied Qi Gong, Taiji, meditation, Taoist medicine, and internal alchemy, in Wudangshan region. I love connecting with community, nature, classic rock/ eastern music, meditation, family, friends, skiing, taoism, zen, modern philosophy, tea pouring, and cultivating meaningful relationships. Thank you all for being a part of my community thus far- I look forward to the unfolding of this Path for all of us.
