      Guarantees fair wages for workers, improving their opportunities for better healthcare, housing education. by choosing Fair Trade tea, you are directly contributing to the livelihood of tea growing communities. this Fair Trade tea is independently certified by TransFair USA

    Why Organic?
    Since their inception in 1989, Choice Organic Teas has questioned the quality of existing conventional teas produced with the aid of destructive synthetic chemicals. These chemicals devastate not only the soil used to cultivate tea (and any other food), but systematically destroy the surrounding ecosystem and the health of the very people who farm the land.

    It remains the goal of Choice Organic Teas to raise awareness across an industry dominated by conventionally cultivated tea to the benefits of sourcing of organic teas. They ask consumers to look for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic seal to ensure that your tea was grown and processed according to the National Organic Standards.

    Here are a few reasons why:

    • Improved soil fertility
      Toxic chemicals are bypassed, freeing soil from exposure to harmful herbicides and pesticides. Workers instead rely on substances such as compost, natural organic matter, and plants to provide the necessary ground cover and nutrients. Weeds and insects are controlled with traditional techniques such as crop rotation, mulching, and the encouragement of “beneficials” – such as extra, pest-controlling spiders. Organic soil also has far more earthworms and soil microbes. Studies show that healthy, live soil at an organic tea garden returns far higher crop yields per unit of energy and fertilizer expended than conventional farming methods. Diversity is healthy.
    • Better for wildlife
      Organic cultivation of tea is better for local wildlife. The Soil Association, an international organization for organic cultivation, notes that a typical organic field has five times as many wild plants, 57 percent more animal species, and 44 percent more birds than a conventionally cultivated farm. Conventional synthetic herbicides and pesticides often kill non-target animals, plants, and insects. The Times of India reported that at least 10 leopards and five elephants died between 1999 and 2001 due to leakage of pesticides from tea gardens in West Bengal. Certainly more have died since then. When mixed with other solvents, these pesticides exert a massive toxic effect on the environment for a long duration, affecting birds, animals and humans.
    • Safer for humans
      If organic farming is safer for wildlife, it is certainly safer for the workers in the tea gardens. On conventional tea estates, the health security for the workers is very low. According to Oxfam, a British non-profit agency working to put an end to poverty world-wide, the spraying of pesticides on tea estates is often done by untrained casual daily wage workers, sometimes even by children and adolescents, who are illiterate and cannot read the warnings on the containers. Many tea farmers spray their plants upwards of 15 to 20 times each year depending on pest infestations. Most of the chemicals they are using (such as - Aldrin 20E, Carbofuran 30, Endosulfan 35 EC, Malathion 50 EC, Tetradifon 8 EC, Calixin 80 EC) are listed as hazardous and toxic, and a number of them are banned in western countries. Despite the dangers of exposure to toxic materials, workers frequently are barefoot and in shorts rather than protected by recommended safety gear such as masks, gloves, rubber boots, and polythene aprons.

    Choice Organic Teas response
    Ultimately, the decision to buy organic products is a choice you make for yourself. If you were to buy a conventional apple at the store, you'd be sure to wash it off before eating it. With tea, though, the first time you "wash" the leaves is when you brew the tea to drink it.

    When people here at Choice Organic Teas are asked, "Why are you organic?" their response is quick. The answer is easy. "How could they be anything other than organic?"

    Suggested Use

    Brewing Instructions: Boil fresh water, steep tea bag in 8 oz. of water for 4-5 minutes and enjoy.

    Iced Tea Is Easy!: Just brew double strength.

    Brewing The Perfect Cup
    Brewing tea can be as complex as a Japanese tea ceremony or as simple as tossing a teabag into your favorite mug. But any way you steep it, taking a moment for yourself to prepare a cup of tea is certainly part of the ritual’s appeal.

    Choice Organic Teas offers these basic guidelines as a place for you to begin your tea enjoyment.

    • The Water
      A truly satisfying cup of tea begins with the best water – fresh and cold from the purest source available.
      • For oolong and black teas, use water right off a rolling boil. Don’t let the water keep boiling though, or it will lose too much oxygen and result in a flat-tasting tea
      • White tea and green tea should be brewed with water that is cooler than boiling; just sit back and wait a minute or two after the water has reached a boil.
    • Steeping
      Rather than steep by color, start by following the time recommended on the package. Then, adjust the length of time according to your personal taste. Once you’ve found the time that works for you, follow it to ensure consistency from cup to cup. Be sure to remove the teabag after the desired time has passed. Don’t just let the tea sit and continue to infuse
