It's not easy finding great organic tea. Many organic tea gardens of the world convert old tea bushes to organic tea production, instead of planting fresh tea bushes grown organically from scratch. At two leaves tea company™ we work tirelessly to provide great organic tea - we seek out the gardens committed to growing new organic tea bushes. It's not easy, but our goal is to provide organic tea that tastes like nothing you've ever had before. The result of our efforts are rich, complex black teas like Assam or Earl Grey that are certified organic with a taste you won't believe.
Our journeys to the gardens show us time and time again that great growers deserve to be rewarded for great tea. As a result, we pay more for premium whole leaf teas, ensuring that more money makes it back to the source.
Two leaves tea company™ is also one of the founding members of the TRUST Organic Small Farmers Initiative. When sourcing our African Sunset rooibos tea, we found that the farmers didn't receive a fair share for their efforts - two leaves tea company™ helped to spearhead the movement to form the TRUST initiative so we could reward South African farmers for their hard work in providing great tea.
Two leaves tea company™ is also a Fair Trade certified company.
"Going there" is a learning experience. Our interactions with farmers, our endless cupping of tea, seeing and experiencing the actual region of origin all adds up to an incredible depth of knowledge that we are committed to sharing with our employees and our customers.
Through our Facebook page, Twitter, and our blog, we give our customers a chance to ask questions, find out fun tea tips and educational facts, and even take part in educational events to ask questions and have them answered by the tea experts at two leaves tea company™.
