Organic teas cost more for online customers for a number of reasons. The main reason being that natural fertilizers are more expensive to purchase and to apply. While synthetic fertilizers can improve the growth of the plants, synthetic fertilizers often leach into streams and ponds polluting the drinking water. Organic teas grown with natural fertilizers like compost, add a more complex variety of nutrients and microbes to enrich the soil. Teas grown under these green programs are grown in harmony with nature for a more sustainable eco-system and planet. Some organic tea growers and tea buyers say that natural fertilizers yield a better tasting tea. We think you will agree.
Organically grown teas must adhere to stringent standards in the use of pesticides. Only natural pesticides are allowed to be used in limited amounts. Natural pesticides are also more expensive to purchase and must be applied more often as they are not as potent. Many organic farmers are also exploring ways to reduce the use of natural pesticides by growing insect repelling plants alongside the tea plants. Taking away growing acreage also diminishes the tea yield and therefore making organically grown tea more expensive but it increases the biodivesity of the tea plantation.
All these green practices reflect the responsible stewardship of the land - a important point we're sure that you'll appreciate fully. Purchasing organic loose teas helps tea growers live in a less toxic environment and which keeps them healthier. The same will apply to you. Organic loose leaf teas are safe to drink and also taste better.
