Given the particular and passionate nature of what we do, we are very selective over who we partner with and how many partners we take on. That said, when a partnership begins, we are committed to going the distance: making sure your tea program is all you envision it could be for the long run. Take a cursory glance at our list of our friends in Specialty Coffee and Hospitality and you'll notice it doesn't change often. We like to think there's a reason for that.

Spirit was conceived with the idea that Americans are ready for the ritual of tea. We are a conglomeration of industry veterans with decades of combined experience in tea, coffee, hospitality and herbalism. We believe in a new tea American culture; one that celebrates producers and rituals over artificial additives and "get-well-quick" blends. From our home in the Near West Side of Chicago, Spirit has dedicated itself to connecting expert cultivators in countries of origin to the passionate industry professionals here who serve their handiwork. Given the culinary talent we work alongside, we are always experimenting and creating new ways of sourcing, making and enjoying tea.
We work with each of our partners to craft a menu that meets their customers' desires and provides a superb quality product mix. We want to help your shop find the tea menu it desires. The teas, herbs and serving wares you offer will uniquely complement the quality product you serve.
We dream of a true American tea culture. We offer unparalleled service, training, and education in order to build strong relationships within our community. This level of partnership also ensures the telling of each tea's story and preserves the end experience of tea ritual. We want to be the catalyst for furthering the craft of tea, including providing the education for appreciation and a tireless thirst for changing the way people prepare and enjoy tea leaves in the twenty-first century—tea’s sixtieth century with humanity.
