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 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 and in September 2018 was acquired by new owners but is still led day-to-day by Peter Martino, the original co-founder of Capital Teas. Peter follows in the shoes of his grandfather, an award-winning master chef, in providing the highest quality beverage products to our customers.

Capital Teas aims to provide each of our customers a multi-sensory tea experience. We do this 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.
