Teatulia Organic Teas Making Progress in the Denver Dining Scene
Here at Teatulai, one of our top company goals is to be offered in the finest dining establishments in Denver and the Front Range. Well, we are happy to announce that FIVE more hip and happening restaurants have welcomed us into their families.
Stoic and Genuine
Located in the stunningly renovated Union Station, Stoic and Genuine is quickly establishing itself as one of the best seafood restaurants in Denver. Some highlights from their menu include, “Classic New England lobster rolls and raw bar crudo creations. Whole Maine lobsters by the pound and fried clams. Impeccably-sourced oysters from both coasts.” Our hot tea varieties at Stoic and Genuine have been carefully selected to pair perfectly with their cuisine.

Illegal Pete’s has been a long-time staple in the Denver food scene and is a reliable go-to for any meal. Pete’s been dishing out fresh Mexican food since 1995, and the quality hasn’t declined one bit! Stop by one of their six locations for a delicious burrito and a refreshing glass of Teatulia Organic on Ice.
Vesta Dipping Grill / Steubens / Ace Eat-Serve
This summer we were welcomed into the fine-dining family comprised of Vesta Dipping Grill, Steubens, and Ace Eat-Serve. Emily Biederman, a manager of the restaurant trio explained the reasoning behind choosing Teatulia, “At Vesta Dipping Grill, Steuben's and Ace we chose to carry Teatulia products for a couple different reasons. First, it is a superior product that our staff can fully get behind and our guests truly enjoy. And second, we are all about supporting a local, socially conscious business. Being an independent, community driven company ourselves, we understand the challenges of maintaining a philanthropic business model, but Teatulia has figured it out, and we are excited to be a part of it.”
Teatulia Organic Teas are sourced directly from their own garden in Northern Bangladesh and other like-minded gardens, with no long-term warehouse storage and no waiting around to be put into the right blend by a third party. The results are exquisite, clean and smooth teas that support education, business and health initiatives and demonstrate a thorough commitment to sustainability. Started in 2000 to give back to the local community, the Teatulia Gardens were established as an enterprise that would give the people a living wage while protecting and strengthening the environment. The KS Foundation was launched to give back to the Bangladeshi community and has created revolutionary education, health and cattle-lending programs for the people working in the garden and surrounding areas. All sales of Teatulia Organic Teas contribute to this mission, helping to better the lives of men, women and children in our community while rebuilding the local ecosystem. Teatulia Organic Teas is mindful of how its actions impact worldwide communities and actively supports ethical organizations like the Whole Planet Foundation, Rainforest Alliance, and B Corporation.
