What’s better than being warm and cozy on a snowy Montana day? Being warm and cozy with a cup of Tumblewood Teas on a snowy Montana day.
Tumblewood Teas was founded in 2009 in Big Timber, Montana, by Riza Gilpin & Laurie Rennie. The company offers a selection of the finest quality teas, including traditional single-estate varieties to new and exciting blends. Their teas, honey products, and brewing accessories offer the joy of simple pleasures and the peace of quiet moments.
“Tea has always been a part of my life, from the early years of drinking it from a glass with my Grandpa, then learning to add milk and sugar from my British neighbor, Joan. It’s always been in the back of my mind as something I’d someday turn into career, although I wasn’t sure in what way, exactly. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed many types of tea, and have gathered a beautiful collection of tea accessories and tins from around the world—now displayed in our office. So, in effect, I have been a student of tea for a very long time. Thankfully, with TUMBLEWOOD, we can now enjoy the finest single origins and blends right here in Montana, and call it a career!”Riza Gilpin, Part-Owner, Tumblewood Teas

“Our families and friends have supported us in making Tumblewood Teas a reality. It’s been a lot of effort and hard work, but we are absolutely in love with this business. We hope to educate and spread the knowledge about our incredible teas on a greater scale, and to continue to support both local producers and our partners from tea estates around the world.”Riza Gilpin & Laurie Rennie, Owners, Tumblewood Teas
