Our Story

Capital Teas is a leading American tea provider. Our 200+ specialty teas and unique products are cherished throughout the United States and in select international locations. Indeed, thousands of people start and end their day with Capital Teas.
The mission of Capital Teas is to educate people and inspire lives through the wonders of tea, one cup at a time. We do this every day in our 12 brick-and-mortar stores, through a strong eCommerce presence fulfilled at our HQ in Annapolis, Maryland, and through the many restaurants and hotels serving Capital Teas.

Capital Teas was founded in Annapolis in 2007. Co-founder Peter Martino, our Chairman & CEO, follows in the shoes of his grandfather, a master chef, in providing the highest quality beverage products to our customers. Recognized today as one of the nation’s leading tea experts, Peter has driven our company forward to becoming a respected member of the Inc. 5000 list of our nation’s fastest growing private companies.

Every Capital Teas venue is designed to provide our customers a multi-sensory tea experience. We continue the customer experience online through videos, testimonials, and free samples for every patron. We encourage exploration, we reward curiosity, and we embrace innovation in all that we do – from ways to brew tea, to unique tea combinations, to infusing tea with cocktails, and more.

We invite our fellow tea drinkers to discover the magic, complexity, flavor, and aroma of our teas with our great-tasting samples. And if you’re able to visit one of our stores, stop by our prominent sniffing wall to “Stop and smell the teas®”.
