Established in the 1950s by the Llano family, the Bitaco Tea Estate is nestled alongside a thriving, protected rainforest in the Bitaco Regional Forest Reserve. Their teas are cultivated 6,000 feet above sea level in the mist-capped Andes, in rich volcanic soil that naturally promotes lush tea plant growth. Bitaco uses sustainable farming practices with respect for people and the planet, and created Fundación Agrícola Himalaya to develop education programs for children and promote the improvement of infrastructure, recreational activities, local culture, and access to technology.
