A significant increase in organic tea consumption has fueled by interest in supporting a healthy environment and lifestyle. – and premium retail stores reflect this change with greatly increased varieties and flavors. Whether drinking green tea for health benefits, enjoying a refreshing cup at home or choosing one of the spicy chai blends of organic tea for an afternoon high tea, both the beverage and its organic niche are enjoying unprecedented popularity.
Organic Tea and the Certification Process
The certification process for organically grown tea varies by region, but consumers can choose teas with trusted certifications like USDA. Japan, Canada and the European Union have their own organic standards, and in the US, the USDA requires that tea growers use many specific farming practices.
Organic tea farmers need to manage crops with organic plant and animal materials that don't contaminate the soil. They must study and apply sustainable tea farming practices for what's allowed and what's prohibited. They must also produce records that document seed sources, pest control measures, harvesting methods and storage strategies. For up to three years before certification, they need to prove that new farmland hasn't been exposed to chemicals. In addition, famers must also submit to annual and surprise inspections - so the overall quality requirements are considerable.
Why People Choose Organic Tea
Certified-organic status confers certain guarantees about the tea that you buy. Conventional high-tech farms use all kinds of chemicals and pesticides, and sometimes the tea leaves aren't washed before being air-dried. Some chemical residue can remain on commercial teas even though providers try to remove most traces. Benefits of drinking organic tea include:
- Eliminating chemical contaminants from food
- Reducing chemical damage to air, water, and soil
- Avoiding GMOs, as USDA organic status prohibits use of GMOs
- Potentially lowering the risks of cancer by reducing exposure to chemicals
Historically, tea has been cultivated in China since 2,000 B.C., and for most of this time, farmers have used sustainable, organic farming methods, and environmentally responsible consumers and some companies today support returning to sustainable tea farming.
