Tea 101: Organic Teas - Nature's Bounty

Organic teas are hard to find.  In most of the tea growing world (Japan, China, Kenya, etc), there is no such concept as 'organic'.  Most of the tea that we source are directly from family-owned farms that have been using the same tea growing techniques for centuries.  Yet, when a community has committed itself to organic teas, we have to take notice.

Benefits of Organic Teas

Organic is good for the ecosystem: Organic tea gardens support ecosystems and don’t contaminate local water supplies. 

Organic tastes better: By using organic fertilizers, like cover crops and manures, tea plants are allowed to blossom and ripen at their own, natural pace.  They have more time to develop the natural sugars in compounds that helps the flavor.  This allows the teas to have a stronger flavor than conventional teas.

Organic is certified: Organic teas are now certified organic by government agencies like the United States Department of Agriculture. In the past, anyone could say that a tea was organic even it was not.
