I wanted to share a few of my favorite tea companies today. With tea being a product that's often affected by human trafficking, it's important to know what to look for and which companies to support. When purchasing tea, you want to think like a holistic consumer - organic and fair/direct trade are always best! With that being said, here are a few of my favorite brands:
Pukka - I discovered Pukka when I was in India. I was immediately drawn to the beautiful packaging, but their commitment to the people and the planet sealed the deal. Their teas are delicious and are Organic, Fair Trade, and Fair Wild certified. Their award winning teas are based on the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda - ‘the art of living wisely.’
Organic India - They are holistic in every sense of the word. Their commitment to respecting the people and the planet involved in their production is outstanding. They practice Biodynamic Organic Farming techniques and focus on sustainability in every aspect of their business.
Traditional Medicinals - With a commitment to quality and sustainability and over 40 years of experience, Traditional Medicinals is an amazing brand of teas and herbal remedies. Their products are non-GMO certified and most hold Organic and Fair Trade certifications as well.
Numi Organic Tea - Numi celebrates people, planet, and pure tea. They value people in every step of the supply chain and ensure fair wages are paid to all. As a result, almost all of their products are certified Fair Trade. Their teas are also certified Organic and the packaging is eco-friendly as they are committed to reducing their impact on the planet.
