We exist to make life flavorful

Our Purpose

The benefits of tea: physical, mental, some even say spiritual.
They are plentiful.
They are well-documented.
They are appealing, in principle.
But for many people, they aren’t enough.
These qualities don’t make tea delightful to drink. Or convenient to grab.
Or a go-to refreshment to savor and seek.

The easy solution? Overload with sugar. Add synthetic flavors.
Douse with preservatives. And defeat the benefits.

The better path? A science of true flavor that begins at the source and persists, uncompromised, to the bottle. The art of finding precisely the right balance of the familiar and the unexpected. An uncompromising commitment to crafting beverages that deliver what is exceptional about tea and what is essential to those who want to taste more.


A commitment to craft

Our Signature Drinks are inspired by creative mixologists and intelligent nutritionists. We freshly brew full-leaf teas and infuse them with fruits, flowers, spices, and herbs. These all natural beverages are always made from real ingredients that are free of artificial flavorings, colors, or additives. Our healthy blends are a perfect balance of smart nutrition and craveable taste.

From Leaf to Bottle

We are passionate about bringing teas directly from growers around the world and blending them into unique and delicious signature beverages and teas. We are committed to being a sustainable business by working with the best local and global tea and flavor artisans and by contributing back to our communities to promote a healthy lifestyle and the conservation of natural resources.

Growing Tea Buds

Argo was founded by two boyhood friends from Armenia who were inspired to reimagine tea for modern consumers by combining the art of mixology and the craft of tea to create exciting, delicious, and healthy signature drinks. Our first café opened in Chicago in 2003. Since then, we have become a household brand name and a leading multi-channel, branded beverage company serving innovative all-natural products within the consumer-packaged goods (CPG) industry and through our chain of flagship retail cafés. Our award-winning ready-to-drink tea beverages in iconic glass bottles are available in retail stores nationwide through partnerships with premier retailers such as Walgreens and many others. In 2020, Golden Fleece Beverages, Inc. took ownership of the Argo Tea brand, and has continued to operate the business as Argo Tea.
