Shafa Blends is a family-owned tea and spice shop in Gaithersburg, Maryland. We hand-craft a variety of teas, spices, herbs, botanical, and salt blends in small batches. Our focus is to create all-natural blends that make you better.
We encourage those who strive to live a healthy life, and who are motivated to create it for themselves. Every conversation, every creation, and every element of nature is an important component of what Shafa Blends has been shaped to be.

In February 2017, we changed our name from Rumi Tea and Spice to Shafa Blends.
Shafa Blends means "Healing" in Farsi and Arabic, which is the focus of our tea and spice blends. We want to provide you with creations that heal your mind, body and soul. We will maintain the spirit of Rumi and the words of many other wise ones throughout our website and in our shop.
Since our establishment in 2015, we have used every opportunity to learn more about natural ways to live, how this influences what we eat and drink, and how we can incorporate it in our lives.
During the past year since we've been operating, we have had the chance to meet so many amazing, powerful, and inspirational people (yes, we are talking about you!) and the interactions that we've had has given us so much energy and inspiration to:
- Connect with people
- Be the place of encouragement and creativity
- Creating a sense of local community
- Spread joy and happiness
