Many of the teas and tisanes in the Heavenly Tea Leaves selection are certified organic. Why organic? Because we are committed to a healthy lifestyle and sustainable, wholesome, and honest tea farming and production. Organic tea is farmed without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers - ingredients that don't belong in your body. It's better for our planet, and it's better for us too, a real win-win all around. Read more about why we prefer organic tea on the Heavenly Tea Leaves blog.
Organic farms are often small and independently run, so when we support them, they support us. Organic farmers use special practices like crop rotation and composting to keep the soil fertile and healthy. Runoff from non-organic plants can damage the entire ecosystem, including our water supply and marine life. Instead, organic methods ensure that anything left over can be absorbed into nature. Heavenly Tea Leaves’ organic teas and tisanes are produced without tarnishing the Earth.
They also practice methods like cover cropping, and conservation tillage. These methods help maintain soil health and capture larger amounts of carbon in the soil than other farming methods.
Organic Increases Healthy Crops & Resillience:
Organic matter in the soil supports healthier crops, which makes them less subject to drought and heat stress. This can be beneficial for extreme weather events.
Fun Facts About Organic Farming:
- Organic farms have 30% more species
- Organic farms support up to 50% more pollinators
- Organic farms have more biological activity, greater soil stability, more biomass, and sequester 26% more carbon than soil from non-organic farms.
Drinking organic is also a delight for your taste buds. Because these teas are chemical-free, you won’t taste any lingering residues or other unnatural flavors. Along with tasting better, they will make you feel better. Organic farms focus on the quality of the leaf instead of boosting production, which means your sip of Heavenly Tea Leaves is always unadulterated.
