About Oregon, United States

Oregon is a state in the United States. Like its northern neighbor Washington state, Oregon has a diverse climate and geography; it borders the ocean on the west, and has a tall range of mountains running north-south close to the ocean. The region to the west of the mountains has high rainfall and a moderate climate, and is covered with temperate rainforest. To the east of the mountains, rain shadow creates deserts; the climate in this region is much more variable and extreme.

Tea has recently begun being commercially cultivated in Oregon, and is available for purchase through JTEA. In addition, many herbs and ingredients in herbal teas, such as mint, are grown there.

Some plants used in herbal teas are native to Oregon, including Clinopodium douglasii, also known as yerba buena or Oregon-tea.

Sustainability of Oregon agriculture

As part of the Pacific Northwest, Oregon has a public image as a humid state with high rainfall. This perception is understandable, as the denser areas of population cluster in the wetter regions near the coast. However, this is only true of the coastal areas; the bulk of Oregon state is quite arid.

Although mints and many of the other herbs commercially grown in Oregon thrive with little care in the wet coastal regions, most commercial cultivation of these herbs is carried out in the eastern part of the state, and extensive irrigation is used (and required) to grow these crops.
