Our operation is certified organic by Global Organic Alliance, so our customers can rest assured that the organic integrity of our teas has been preserved from crop to cup.

Organic tea production has a far gentler impact on the environment than conventional agriculture by eliminating the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Thus, organic teas yield a variety of benefits over conventional teas, including:

Better for Living Things.

Organic agriculture is healthier for flora and fauna, including humans. Persistent agrochemicals can accumulate up the food chain, often resulting in a variety of health and reproductive ailments, and reaching toxic levels in top predators.

Better for Our Water.

Organic agriculture lessens eutrophication in bodies of water. Excessive use of synthetic fertilizers can lead to algae blooms in nearby lakes and rivers, upsetting the delicate balance of those aquatic ecosystems and killing many of the organisms that live there.

Better for Our Air.

USDA Organic Certified Tea Organic agriculture is better for our atmosphere. Conventional farming relies on synthetic fertilizers and other agrochemicals that are very energy-intensive to produce. This process results in the emission of carbon and other contaminants, which contributes to global climate change and various forms of air pollution.
