About Bolivia

Bolivia is a relatively small, landlocked country in South America, sharing borders with Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile and Peru. Bolivia has a diverse topography and climate, ranging from tropical rainforest through cold highland areas. Many of the intermediate climate zones in Bolivia are suitable for growing tea.

Although virtually unknown in the global tea market, Bolivia does grow tea commercially. In 2008, Bolivia was the 34th largest producer of tea, producing less than 0.02% of the world's total commercial output of tea.[1] Bolivian teas can be difficult to obtain in the U.S., but they have been available through Simpson & Vail. Unfortunately, the supplier of Simpson & Vail's black tea was shut down due to a US crackdown on coca leaf production.
