Sourcing

QTrade's origins were on a tropical tea plantation over 30 years ago, founded by an industry veteran who knows tea from the ground up. QTrade understands terroir, and knows how to optimize an ingredient at the garden level to get the precise taste and quality a market demands.

This intimate knowledge allows partnerships with suppliers whose quality-control and scalability perfectly match a recipe's needs. Also, QTrade has long-standing relationships with innovative and well-established flavor houses, and can source an array of natural and organic flavors.

QTrade offers the unique combination of multi-country garden expertise and a deep understanding of the North American specialty tea market.
