Heywood Logo'We are Tea Lovers.'

We love tea for the fragrance, taste and health functions. But a hard reality we faces today with nearly all sorts of agricultural products is the over-use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, as well as the contamination of irrigation water and soil. Tea is supposed to be a healthy drink to us but now it may be harmful to our bodies. As such, we visited different organic farms around the world and purchased directly from the farmers for the ingredients in making our tea bags.

 

 

Sourcing directly from the organic farms in Bulgaria, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan
We source all our ingredients from the farms in Bulgaria, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. We have all our ingredients certified organic or the farming process strictly following organic farming or sustainable farming practices.

We then package our tea in Hong Kong. 

 

Inheriting Hong Kong’s tradition – When the East meets West, it sparks a new idea and a new product
There is no lack of organic tea bags in the market. What makes us different is that we blend our tea based on the traditional Chinese herbal formula, and hence our tea is functionally stronger than the others.

Customers may pick the tea with the functions that fit their needs, and to maximize the health benefits they can get from a cup of tea. 

 

Focus on sustainable development
While we pay utmost attention to the safety of our ingredients, we hope our tea bags would also bolster the idea of environmental preservation. We source our ingredients from the farms adopting sustainable farming practices, which minimizes the damages to the environment.


“Hey Tea” is to bring healthy and safe tea products to the tea lovers. In addition, we hope to shoulder some responsibility on natural preservation. Yes, we are taking valuable resources from our mother nature but only in a reasonable manner and on a necessary basis.

 

What is organic farming/sustainable farming practices?

√ Do not apply pesticides

√ Irrigation water and soil pass heavy metal tests

√ Do not apply chemical fertilizers, or limited use of organosynthetic fertilizers (capped at 1/3 of the government’s requirement)

√ Do not use genetically-modified seeds

√ Maintain the quality of irrigation water and soil, minimize the impact on the natural environment as well as other wildlife

 

Our ingredients are credited with the following certifications:

√ EU Organic

√ JAS Organic

√ GAP

√ Eco-Friendly (Pesticide Free)

 

Attention to Details, Strive for Perfection
Our ingredients come directly from the farms in their most natural and original forms. For example, the whole red dates with seeds inside. As we need to put the ingredients into pyramid tea bags, we dice them up into small pieces.

We choose pyramid tea bags as the flavor and nutrition of our ingredients can be more efficiently released into water during the brewing process than conventional rectangular tea bags. In addition, the pyramid tea bags allow the customers to see more clearly the ingredients inside, enhancing their confidence in our products.

Our pyramid tea bags individually wrapped in foil pouches to keep the ingredients inside at their best condition, shielding them from any moisture and heat in the air.

 

 

Heywood Tea「我們都是愛茶之士。」

 

因為我們喜歡喝茶,所以做茶,亦希望將高品質的茶跟世界各地的朋友分享。

我們喜歡喝茶,因為茶香味美,而且具養生之效。但現在的農產品使用過度農藥及化肥,水土亦受到污染。本來對身體有益的茶,卻令身體受到損害。有鑑於此,我們走訪世界各地有機農場,直接跟農夫合作採購,以天然有機的原材料製作茶包。


由有機農場直接採購: 保加利亞-日本-南韓-台灣

現時,我們所有的原材料都是從四個國家的農場直接採購 - 保加利亞,日本,南韓及台灣。所有原料都獲得各樣國際認證,確保種植過程是符合有機耕種或可持續發展的農耕方法。

然後,我們把材料運送到香港包裝。


秉乘香港的傳統,揉合中西方的優點,創出新產品

市面上有不少有機茶包,曦活茶獨特之處,在於我們根據中草藥配方調配,功能性較強。顧客可根據自己的體質,選擇適合的茶包種類,以達到保健養生之效。

作為一個香港品牌,我們希望揉合中西方的優點,結合中醫學的養生配方及西方有機種植的原材料,創造出健康養生的茶包。


重視可持續發展

我們不但著重茶包原材料的安全,同時希望把環境保護的理念帶進茶包。我們選擇採取可持續發展的農耕方法的農場採購原材料,確保對環境造成最小的影響。

因為我們創立這個品牌,是希望將健康及安全的茶品帶給大眾之餘,同時對屬於我們的大自然負責任,並取之有道,為保護我們的環境盡一分力。


何謂有機耕種/可持續發展的農耕方法?

  • 沒有用殺蟲劑
  • 水土通過重金測試
  • 沒有使用化學農藥,或限量使用有機農藥 (上限為政府規定的1/3)
  • 沒有使用基因改造的種子
  • 維持水土質量,盡量將對環境及其他野生動植物的影響減到最低<

我們所採用的原料,獲以下農業認證

√ 歐盟有機認證

√ 日本有機認證

√ 良好農業規範

√ 生態友善認證
