Living Tea

Colin Hudon

Living Tea is a purveyor of rare, aged and fine teas, as well as hand-thrown tea ware. For the past decade we've been traveling to remote regions of Asia to source very special teas, many of which have not made their way yet to the western world. We are excited to announce the creation of a traditional tea house and art gallery in Telluride, Colorado, called Mountain Gate. This space will allow us to share the many brewing methods and traditions of tea ceremony that we've been studying in Asia over the past ten years.
