Here at Tupelo Honey Teas, we are so passionate about finding and drinking delicious, healthy and socially responsible tea and we want you to feel the same way!
Tea is the most consumed beverage in the world, second only to water. In almost every other society outside the United States, tea is a daily ritual. In some countries, tea is a supplement between meals. In others, it is a health tonic. And in some cases,it is an alternative to dirty water. A day without tea in some regions of the world would be a crisis, because yes, it is that important.
Nowadays, ‘Organic,’ ‘Socially Responsible’, and ‘Fair Trade’ are all buzz words spoken by small and large companies alike. Some companies claim that their practices are green, but may just be marketing themselves that way. So how do you know that what you consume is actually good for the environment? Luckily there are processes that involve government regulations. These regulations are intended to help decipher the good from the bad, but often involve expensive certifications that may not be feasible for small businesses. Therefore, it is best to buy from someone who knows exactly where their tea is coming from and who is growing it. The majority of our teas are purchased from wholesalers who deal directly with small growers. Knowing where our tea comes from is so important to us. We want you to know too so check out each tea to see pictures of where it is grown and other specific information.
