Organic tea farming began in 1987. Beyond delivering the highest quality product, organic agriculture ensures a healthy and sustainable environment because organic farming does not use chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or insecticides. This practice preserves our earth’s resources by minimizing pollutants, as well as protects the health of the workers who would otherwise be exposed. We, at Numi, are proud that all of our tea bags and loose teas are certified organic.
According to Organic.org, “organic produce and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation.” Organic agriculture promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles, soil biological activity through management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.
Organic Certification is awarded, regulated, and monitored by third parties.
