Two Leaves And A Bud is committed ...
- To Organic: It's not easy finding great organic tea. Many organic tea gardens of the world convert old tea bushes to organic tea production, instead of planting fresh tea bushes grown organically from scratch. At Two Leaves, they work tirelessly to provide great organic tea - they seek out the gardens committed to growing new organic tea bushes. It's not easy, but their goal is to provide organic tea that tastes like nothing you've ever had before. The result of the efforts are rich, complex black teas, like Assam or Earl Grey, that are certified organic with a taste you won't believe.
- To Small Farmers: Two Leaves And A Bud journeys to the gardens show them time and time again that great growers deserve to be rewarded for great tea. As a result, they pay more for premium whole leaf teas, ensuring that more money makes it back to the source.

When sourcing African Sunset rooibos tea, they found that the farmers didn't receive a fair share for their efforts - Two Leaves helped to spearhead the movement to form the TRUST initiative so they could reward South African farmers for their hard work in providing great tea. Two Leaves tea company is also a Fair Trade certified company.
- To Education: "Going There" is a learning experience. Their interactions with farmers, their endless cupping of tea, seeing and experiencing the actual region of origin all adds up to an incredible depth of knowledge that they are committed to sharing with employees and customers.
