New Mexico Tea Company opened its doors on November 1, 2006 in one of Albuquerque's oldest neighborhoods between urban downtown and historic Old Town. We occupy the central retail space in a brand new building on the northeast corner of Mountain Road and Twelfth Street. Mountain Road is currently undergoing a wonderful renovation from the museums to the west at Rio Grande Boulevard and the Harwood Art Center to the east at 7th Street. We are committed to making available a range of high quality loose tea and incense to our neighbors throughout the state of New Mexico as well as our neighbors around the world.

Upcoming events

  • Tea Class

    Yatoe Huang recently moved to New Mexico from Xiamen, China and offers her extensive knowledge of brewing, tasting, and serving fine Chinese teas. Many of us in Albuquerque have not had the experience of traveling to China and tasting for ourselves what truly high quality means. Yatoe will answer your questions and give you the gift of fine tea discrimination. The charge is $35 for a two hour class. Call for reservations.

  • Tea Tasting

    Join David, owner of NM Tea Co., in tasting a variety of teas. Every friday from 6pm to 7pm. The tasting is free, but please call ahead to reserve a spot.

      I am quite a tea aficionado and love this store. New Mexico Tea Co has a fantastic selection of unusual teas. My favorite is Caramel Darling Rooibos.

      Excellent place to buy a wide variety of top-quality loose teas and tea accessories. Attractive store. Courteous and knowledgeable help with tea questions. The free tea tastings Friday evenings are most informative (but be sure make a reservation).

      Dave really has a great appreciation for fine Teas. The store is lovely and the variety of Tea is well thought out. You'll find some unique and tastey blends. I love this Tea Shop. No food or preparation in the store...therefore the 'poor' catagory on those in my review.

      The ratings for food and tea prep are NOT poor, they are just 'not applicable' here. That's OK with us. Although we enjoy tea as an experience, finding this quality of tea and knowledge close to home is a great gift in itself. No old tea or tea dust in bags sold here. We highly recommend NM tea company to anyone looking for high quality tea and friendly, knowledgeable service. We'll be back as often as necessary.

      Very pleasant store with an excellent selection of black and green teas and Rooibos. They have a good quality if limited selection in white teas and Mate. The stock is fresh, the blends are enticing and the owner is very helpful. The 3 teas I purchased are excellent. I will be totally pleased when NM Tea Co adds a range of Pu-erh teas. Then all will be well with my world.

      Nm Tea Co is a calm place where they know their tea. Mostly its high quality loose leaf tea( no food though). I asked for their recomendations when I first went in and loved the tea I bought. I go back every month now and I havent gotten a tea I dont like. They are also very customer friendly and have a lovely selection of tea pots.

      New Mexico Tea Company is a must stop for me when I visit New Mexico. The owner is knowledgeable and friendly and I always leave with quality tea and new information about the benefits of tea drinking.
