Supporting adults with disabilities

Silk Road Teas is more than just tea. We are committed to giving back to our community by providing jobs packaging our teas to disabled adults. As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.

The Silk Road Teas Story


Chinese black teas, particularly those from Fujian, are made with a"softer" touch.  The tastes tend to be nuanced rather than heavy and overly strong.

Excellent teas with food and for refreshment.

    The sampler of black teas is perfect to trying out Silk Road Teas. The leaves are robust and make a second cup without losing flavor. All stand up to milk and a long steep, twice over. Hmmm, enjoy hot or cold.
