Organic Tea – Intro

More and more consumers worldwide are demanding organically grown tea and other food products, and their cry for going “green” is being heard and heeded. Both large tea estates, and small artisanal farms, are turning to organically grown standards for growing their tea.

The rules governing organic tea are tightly controlled, and as with most government rules and regulations, can be quite cumbersome. In short, organic tea is defined as tea that must be grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbacides. The crop must rely solely on natural organic matter, such as dung, compost, and plants and trees, which provide necessary nutrients and ground cover.
