Organics: We work with small producers who usually cannot afford the complex and costly process of organic certification. Where we have organic certification we say so. Where we do not, we still use the term organic to refer to small production teas where the farmer assures us that the growing methods comply with organic rules. We realise this may be a bit controversial but we feel the need to reward farmers who farm sustainably in this way.
