    Cusa Instant Tea

    Cusa Tea founder, Jim Lamancusa, discovered his passion for tea while exploring the traditional tea shops of Hong Kong as a study-abroad student. Inspired by southeast Asia during that first trip, he ended up living in the region for over two and a half years. While there, he received a complete education in the craft and culture of tea, visiting tea plantations and shops throughout China and India simply because he loved the experience of a premium cup of tea. Fast forward through fifteen years of dedicated tea drinking to a backpacking trip in the Colorado Rockies. As his friends prepared instant coffee around the fire, he steeped a tea bag he would have to pack out at the end of the trip and thought to himself, “why hasn’t anyone developed a high-quality, instant tea?”

    After returning from the mountains, Jim began to experiment with tea and quickly realized that existing production methods for instant beverages damaged tea characteristics, resulting in a final product that didn’t reflect the flavor and nuance of high-quality tea. After nine months of trial and error, he found a completely new brewing and dehydration process that could deliver a perfect cup of premium organic tea in seconds. This new Cold Steep Technology retained all the taste and character of the teas Jim hand selected from specialty organic plantations, and Cusa Tea was born.

    GGG IS THE BEST

    What a pleasure it was to do business with GGG!

    I ordered the SWD x GGG pack last year, and it has been such a pivotal piece of gear since! Not only on trail, but also off trail! I use it as my everyday bag to work and school during the week, and in the back country on the weekend!

    It was a real privilege to do business with a company like GGG that has deep connections to the grassroot community!

    Cool gear and great customer service experiennce

    I have made several purchases from GGG and have liked everything I have bought even though I have not heard of many of these brands before. They have all been very high quality and unique.
    Most importantly their customer service has been excellent.
    They are quick to respond and they aim to please.

    Amazing customer service

    I've been browsing the GGG website for a long time and finally decided to make an order for multiple items I've been eyeing. Turns out that the company making one of the items I ordered could no longer supply it, even though it had been up for ordering on the GGG site. GGG took swift action: they refunded me for the missing item, took the brand off their site immediately and included a bunch of awesome freebies with the rest of my order. Such attentive customer service is rare and much appreciated. I'll definitely be ordering from them again!

    High quality people selling high quality gear!

    I am a big fan of Garage Grown Gear. By far the best place to find unique, high quality gear. The hand written notes that come with each order are a fun personal touch and show that they are passionate about what they do. And it’s nice knowing my money is going towards helping small businesses! I will absolutely be ordering from them again.

    High quality and unique gear

    GGG is the first place I look for gifts and for myself when I'm considering an outdoor gear purchase. I especially appreciate what they must be doing to find, screen and accept only the highest quality and unique gear that you can't find elsewhere. Their personal touches such as returning emails quickly and answering any questions is "one of a kind" from my perspective. It feels good to purchase from a small USA company that promotes entrepreneurs who have great ideas and "garage grown" quality products. Also, their online magazine is chock full of ideas and insights.
