About Us

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." – Margaret Mead

Arbor Teas is a family-owned organic tea company based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Our daily mission is to find the world's most fantastic organic teas and deliver them to you as sustainably as possible.

We love what we do. And what’s not to love? We work with some of the world’s most fascinating, delicious, and healthy products. We get to sell goods that we proudly stand behind to amazing people. Our concern for environmental sustainability and social welfare inspires us to be an agent of positive change in the world. And we have a blast doing it every day, with the best team imaginable. A day isn’t complete without animated conversation and fits of laughter around our lunch table!

Arbor Teas was founded by husband and wife team Aubrey and Jeremy Lopatin in 2004. Our company has grown a bit since its humble beginnings as our first website was built in exchange for painting our friend’s kitchen! As we’ve grown, so has our enthusiasm, our focus, and our convictions. We hope this shows in our work. Now, Aubrey is at the helm and Arbor Teas is proud to be owned and operated by an all women team including several mother-daughter duos.

Don’t ever hesitate to contact us, whether you have a question, a concern, or a suggestion for improvement - we’d love to hear from you. We truly hope you enjoy your visit with us at Arbor Teas.
