What Does Organic Mean?
Organic tea must NOT contain any artificial ingredients. It is grown by natural means without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. It encourages healthy soil, clean water and a vibrant and diverse environment.

Organic Tea Gardens
Not only do organic tea gardens protect the environment, but they also guard the health and happiness of their families and valued employees. Many tea farmers have decided to switch to organic farming primarily for the health of their families. The popularity and desire for organic products has created a high demand for organic farming and has saved many smaller family farms because they can sell their crops for fair prices.
Organically farmed products possess great health and gastronomic benefits for the consumer of these crops. Many independent studies have shown that organic foods can contain more antioxidants and nutrients because of the rich, biologically active soil. Organic foods are also subjected to a higher standard by the additional safety and quality testing that they must pass to be considered certified organic. It is not surprising that these pesticide and artificial ingredient free teas have scored higher in taste tests versus non organic teas.
Our Teas Are Certified Organic
Our teas are certified organic through the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association. The OEFFA was founded in 1979 and is a grassroots coalition of farmers, backyard gardeners, consumers, retailers, educators, researchers, and others who share a desire to build a healthy food system that brings prosperity to family farmers, meets the growing consumer demand for local food, creates economic opportunities for our rural communities, and safeguards the environment.
For more than 30 years, OEFFA has used education, advocacy, and grassroots organizing to promote local and organic food systems, helping farmers and consumers reconnect and together build a sustainable food system, one meal at a time.
