We source all our ingredients directly from the farms with sustainable farming practices in Bulgaria, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. Sustainable farming practices mean that the farmers avoid the use of chemical fertilizers and genetically modified seeds; preserve the soil and water quality, as well as conserving wildlife. 

Unlike fresh fruits or vegetable, it is impossible for the consumers to wash or rinse any tea bags to get rid of the chemical residues obtained from inappropriate farming practices. As the safety of our tea is always the most important issue in our mind, we spend huge amount of efforts in securing safe ingredients in producing our tea bags.

We notice that some organic products are certified organic for their packaging process only but the ingredients may not be grown organically. We try to take a step ahead to provide better food safety assurance to our consumers, via sourcing ingredients directly from the farms with sustainable farming practices.

We strive to give the best we can to our customers – functional tea of clean sources. A tea truly can bring health benefits to our customers.
