The Tea Centre’s commitment to certified organic teas
Did you know that the word 'organic' is not regulated in Australia?
This means that any item on your supermarket shelf containing just a smidgen of sustainable product can call itself organic. While some products in Australia will distinguish themselves as truly certified organic by using a sometimes confusing array of certification marks, The Tea Centre bypasses this muddled process altogether by sourcing our organic black and green teas straight from the organic industry's foremost leader: the European Union.
Our main tea supplier is not only part of The German Tea Association but has also been certified organic by the German DE-ÖKO-005 eco-inspection agency. This agency is part of the greater European Union organics sector, and guarantees that at least 95% of ingredients listed are derived from organic farming. Our farmers are 100% committed to observing the Code of Practice for Quality Control. This means that our imported organic teas are from sustainable tea-growing regions, are monitored for traces of pesticide, and are ethically sourced.
Did you know that the majority of our Australian-supplied herbal tisanes are also made from certified organic ingredients? The main supplier of our wellbeing range is an Australian company whose herbs are ACO-certified. This means that our supplier is audited every year to ensure the products they sell to us are grown without the use of synthetic or toxic chemicals and pesticides. The best way to learn more is to taste our amazing range of organic tea today!
What is a “certified organic” tea?For a tea to be considered “certified organic” in Australia, it must pass several strict quality tests that examine the product for organic integrity. An organic product must be grown and manufactured without the use of pesticides, GMOs, and synthetic chemicals. When a product is certified organic, that means the certification bodies were able to track every step of the item’s journey from crop to cup. This transparency allows the consumer greater purchasing power, allowing them to consciously choose a tea that helps the environment as well as pleases their taste buds!
