Inspired by ancient herbal wisdom and ancient tea traditions, Scout Urling launched Flying Bird Botanicals in 2006 through her passion of crafting artisan teas that are both delicious and nourishing. Always choosing quality and community: including people and planet, over profit, they strive to contribute to the beauty in the world they share not only through their delicious and nourishing creations but through the relationships they make with the people around them.
Flying Bird Botanicals teas are always made with only organically farmed and ethically wildcrafted herbs looking first to their local community for sourcing. At home in the Pacific Northwest and across the country, they work with over a dozen farms to source the highest quality, freshest herbs available. They are proud to support farmers in the USA and work hard to build meaningful relationships ensuring a stronger community and a delicious cup for all of us.
Their overseas purchases are made with global community at heart. They source spices from fair trade certified farms and teas from small gardens and cooperatives, growing their tea plants with care, using heirloom traditions passed down through generations.
Their state of the art bagging technique, biodegradable teabags and beautiful packaging reflect the care and attention to detail that goes into the creation of their teas. Original hand drawn illustrations printed on textured paper wrap their air tight recycled steel tins that are made here in the USA.
