Louisville Tea Company

Nicolette Spears used to think green tea tasted like bad, stale grass-clippings. So when she began studying the importance of brewing temperature, it was a revelation. “Green tea is like a vegetable: if you burn the leaves, it tastes really bitter. That was sort of an eye-opener to me.”

Now, at Louisville Tea Company, Spears brews more than a hundred tea varieties according to strict standards, paying attention to each brew’s optimal brewing temperature, steep time, and leaf-to-water ratio. She also considers her tea’s origins: she sources Japanese green tea directly from a small tea farm in Japan, and the Kenyan Ajiri Tea employs Kenyan women and funds orphan education in West Kenya.

Additionally, Spears strives to educate newbies about tea. At the tasting bar, she brews fresh pots of tea and tea flights. At the shop, tea experts delve not only into tea origins and flavors, but the positive effects on human health and boring water.
