our ORGANIC Philosophy.
Everyone deserves to live a healthy and full life. To that end, “organic” is at the very soul of our core beliefs and our business. Organic not only refers to natural origins of the botanical plant, but also to the way it is cultivated, produced and processed. Organic agriculture is based on the system of farming that mimics natural ecosystems, thus maintaining and replenishing nutrients and the fertility of the soil. It uses natural ways of pest control, such as frogs, bats and plants with natural insect-repelling properties. It utilizes traditional, time-tested methods of processing. Therefore, organic products are free from harmful chemical fertilizers and toxic pesticides.
We show up as people who use our own products to live inspired and healthy lives and these values drive every decision we make. This is the secret to our success.
Finding the right FARMERS
Unsurprisingly, there are few open tea fields suitable for producing organic tea plants. After a lot of research and traveling, we finally found a select few family-owned tea farms and cultivars that share our beliefs and philosophies. Located in the Nantou region of Taiwan, the farms are 100% organic through and through.
The farmers practice a method of farming called no-till farming, better known as Holistic management. The farmers believe in nature’s way of growing crops from one year to the next. Before and after rainfall, they do not disturb the soil. They let the water infiltrate into the soil, creating a moss-like grass that increases organic matter retention and cycling of nutrients to produce the highest quality tea. It’s truly nature’s way. This not only enhances the flavor of the tea, it also eliminates the need for fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and other chemically enhanced farming practices.
It’s amazing what happens when we let Mother Nature do her job.
Mastering the process of bringing you the healthiest, most natural tea we could find didn’t come easy. We traveled the world, bending the ears of tea experts and tea lovers all along the way. And we’ll admit it: We totally geeked out on the process. This process included mastering the tea for hot flashes, skin beauty, restful sleep and pure happiness; using innovative techniques to fine-tune GABA levels; and combining choice herbs like scientists.
As a result, we now follow a five-point, doctor-inspired process that puts every aspect that contributes to the perfect tea under a microscope. This ensures you always get the best formulation and highest quality tea.
