Local Pottery to Please the Senses

Nestled off the beaten path, east of the 5 Freeway in Leucadia, California, sprawls The Wheel, the creative studio of veteran potter, Mike Totah and his dedicated team of crafters. And though you may not currently give too much thought about the cup or mug you drink your Buddha Teas tea-of-the-moment out of, well, Mike does think about it—he knows that drinking from a hand-thrown piece of his exclusively designed pottery makes the experience a bit more sublime. We think so too, and that’s why we decided to make these thoughtfully designed and created mugs available to you, our beloved Buddha Teas customers.

It’s All About The Artist


Daniel Sabelis, Potter
“I can’t compete with China, so I never wanted to try.” –Mike Totah

When we decided to offer our customers a dedicated Buddha Teas mug, we wanted to make sure our product stayed true to our mission, which in part seeks to provide a nourishing experience that satisfies the soul and pleases the senses. We believe that the tea itself is just a part of this experience, the main part, naturally, but just a part. We believe that our tea lovers expand their tea-drinking satisfaction by being able to enjoy the benefits and taste of our organic herbal, black, green, and white teas when had by using a handmade, exclusively designed mug crafted locally by a sought-after, nationally-known potter. And, though Mike does not himself make each mug (he’s way too busy for that!), one of his personally trained artists does.

We are so pleased to be able to share this co-designed, handcrafted product with you. Know that each mug is made with the Buddha Teas spirit, in hopes of giving you the full tea experience you deserve.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

Bleach Free Tea Bag

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
