Any tea devotee knows that not all teas are created equal. Realizing this, we at Tea Organix perform extensive comparative tasting whenever we consider adding a new tea to our catalog. If it isn’t up to snuff, we simply won’t offer it. In addition, we meticulously manage our inventory of teas and store them in temperature controlled “cold” rooms, to maintain maximum freshness. We strive to offer only the best organic and Fair Trade Certified® teas and herbs in the world!
We select our inventory with quality, organic certification, and Fair Trade certification in mind. First and foremost, we search for organic certified teas that represent classic manufacturing styles from around the world. Then we select the best organic variety within each style. If we find a tea that is of high quality, organic certified, and Fair Trade Certified®, we will choose that product first. However, some teas are not available Fair Trade Certified or the Fair Trade Certified option does not meet our quality requirements. As a result, we will opt for the organic certified option only.
By limiting ourselves to organic certified teas and herbs only, we will occasionally opt to offer a style of tea or herb from a location that is not the traditional origin. For example, our Organic and Fair Trade Certified Dragonwell Green Tea is not sourced from the traditional West Lake District in China, because (to our knowledge) there is not yet an organic and Fair Trade certified garden in that region. If possible, we will always opt to source from the traditional origin, but if an option is not available we will expand our search beyond those boundaries.
Our facility is certified organic by Global Organic Alliance and certified for food handling by the Michigan Department of Agriculture.
