Bitaco® is essentially a “new” tea Origin, located in the exotic, beautiful, and peaceful Andes Mountains of Colombia.
Bitaco® is a High Grown tea that is cultivated at over 6,000 feet above sea level in the mist-capped Andes at Bitaco, Colombia. We are located in the bio-geographic region of Chocó, characterized by its high level of rainfall and exceptional biodiversity. The Bitaco® Tea plantation is a tiny tea garden nestled alongside a thriving, protected rain forest, the Bitaco Regional Forest Reserve (Reserva Forestal Protectora Regional de Bitaco).
Our tea is grown in rich, deep, young volcanic soils that naturally promote lush tea plant growth. Our nearness to the Equator (just south of our border with Ecuador) and the consistent climate results in a bountiful production of tasty, delicate tea-tips throughout the year.
