100% Organic loose leaf tea company.

About Boco Tea

Boco Tea is a 100% organic, loose leaf tea company located in Boulder, Colorado.  Owned and operated by identical twin brothers, Forest and Taylor Roy, we strive to make incredibly flavorful, high quality, innovative tea that you will look forward to drinking on a daily basis.  

With over 15 years of collective tea experience, we have created a diverse line of  herbal teas which are handmade in small batches to ensure the highest quality, flavor and freshness.  Unlike most tea companies, all our herbal blends are made without the use of flavor enhancing essential oils.

Boco Tea is also proud to offer a full line of certified organic and Fair Trade rooibos, black and green teas.  All of our teas have been meticulously chosen for their superior flavor, color, and quality.

Currently, Boco Tea offers 23 teas.

  • 10 Herbal Teas
  • 6 Black Teas
  • 4 Green Teas
  • 3 Rooibos Teas

In addition to making amazing tea, we are also deeply committed to preserving the environment.  In an effort to minimize Boco Tea's impact on the earth, we have carefully selected sustainably produced ingredients, environmentally conscious vendors, and biodegradable packaging.

Business Plan

Boulder’s vibrant entrepreneurial environment and faithful support of local business combined with the fact that Boco Tea is the only organic tea company in town makes us very confident that our company will thrive.

Locally, we plan to sell directly to cafes, restaurants, B&B’s, grocery stores and the Boulder Farmer’s Market that happens every Wednesday and Saturday from April to November. 

We also plan to use facebook and have a website so people near and far can buy our teas.
