Our loose leaf green tea sampler are 100% pesticide free
All of the teas contained within the loose leaf green tea sampler were produced without the use of pesticides or chemicals. We make sure to visit the farms in person when we source tea, and we notice that the farms that don’t use chemicals or pesticides have become a habitat for multiple plant species as well as small animals. We think it is important that a tea field not only grows great tea, but also maintains the health and beauty of the surrounding area.
