About Malabar Trading Company
Founded in 1994, Malabar Trading Company sells premium single estate loose leaf tea, classic tea blends, botanicals, award-winning chai spice blends, and tea condiments.
In 1997, the Whole Foods flagship market in Austin, Texas was our first 'big' customer. In 1999, we joined the Monterey Bay Certified Farmers Markets organization and immediately developed a loyal following of customers throughout Carmel, Monterey, Aptos, and Santa Cruz. Our customer base grew into a large national base over the years as local customers mailed holiday gifts to their friends and families across the US — and they, too, became customers.
In 2011, our Kashmiri Chai blend was a winner in the North American Tea Championship. Considering the substantial number of tea entries (into the thousands) we were honored to be awarded this prestigious recognition.
