Organic Farming

Chemically dependent agriculture harms the environment and puts human health at risk. Every year, farm workers and people living near conventional farms suffer from poisonings and serious health effects from pesticide spraying.

With the adverse effects of conventional farming in mind, organic practices were a prerequisite for Tea So Tea. Our organic farming practices are designed to encourage soil and water conservation and reduce pollution. We do not use conventional methods to fertilize or control weeds. For example, rather than using chemical weed killers, we conduct more sophisticated crop rotations and spread mulch or manure to keep weeds at bay.

Organic farming seeks to work with nature rather than against it. It is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity.

Tea So Tea is certified organic by the Soil Association UK. The Soil Association is one of the few associations that have chosen to set standards that are higher than the EU minimum.
