Outside of Seattle (and maybe Portland), Brooklyn has been at the center of the craft coffee movement for sometime now. So it should come as no surprise, when it comes to another hot, caffeinated office favorite, Brooklyn is on trend once again.

Meet Bushwick Tea.

Founded by Ratesh Chopra, London-born New Yorker with tea-drinking experience dating back to his childhood across the Atlantic, Bushwick Tea is manufacturing its premium tea (where else but) in Brooklyn. Ratesh approaches the world of premium tea with two goals; authenticity and scalability.

Bushwick Tea is elevating the tea experience by maintaining the integrity of high quality whole tea leaves combined with an “unconventional branding experience.”

Ratesh and the Bushwick Tea team select and pack their teas with “love, joy, taste and wellness as (their) guides right in Brooklyn.”

Now Bushwick Tea is available in your New York City or New Jersey office from Corporate Essentials.

Check out the six different varieties that make up the Bushwick Tea office lineup:

BROOKLYN BREAKFAST (Organic Black Tea)    

LET’S TALK TASTE
