About Us

Company Expertise

Established in 1994, the creation of Core Botanica brought together the expertise of a Colorado tea company and an Oregon essential oils buyer to supply premium US grown mint tea to the world. It was in those early days that the MartinBauer extended support and opportunities that opened the door to the EU market and beyond. The rest is history. Today, more than 25 years later, Core joins the global MartinBauer family of companies and honors the close partnerships that made it possible.
