The organic production of our products is of the utmost importance to us. That's why all our teas are certified organic – without exception. In effect, what this means for the cultivation and further processing of our teas is: no synthetic chemical pesticides and fertilisers, no genetic engineering, no food irradiation and fewer additives. But that's not all – we also look for varied and sustainable cultivation, so that soil fertility is preserved for future generations.
Fair enough! For teas originating from countries where social standards are not as a rule enforced, we also endeavour to obtain – or have already obtained – certification based on Fairtrade or Rainforest Alliance criteria. Here, too, sustainable farming practices play an important role in protecting the soil and surrounding waters. At the same time, these standards promote fair trade, fair working conditions and appropriate remuneration for producers. Fairtrade aims to sustainably empower smallholder families and their communities, to improve their productivity and infrastructure and thereby lastingly improve their position in the world market. Rainforest Alliance certified farmers also undergo training with a view to increasing their yield and tea quality and improving their living conditions in the long term. It is of the utmost importance to us that we can offer not only first-class tea, but above all sustainable enjoyment, because we believe that the one cannot exist without the other.
