Spring: Organic Green Tea
Generally called Jakseol, and compared to a sparrow's tongue for its size and shape, the tea leaves bud in spring. The tender leaves yield a delicate and sweet flavour.
ABOUT OUR GREEN TEA
Organic green tea that is grown on the cleanest of soils revitalizes and restores both mind and body. The refreshing effects of green tea, contrary to the stimulating nature of caffeine in coffee, stem from its vibrant leaves full of life. Just as green tea removes toxins from the body, it may also absorb toxic elements from the soil, which makes it all the more imperative for us to insist on organic green tea.
Are all organic standards the same?
We can proudly say that Tea of Teas is truly from the highest organic standards.
Cultivated since 1990 using only natural compost as fertilizer to improve soil fertility, Teas of Teas received many national organic and quality certifications.
An inspection team from a USDA-designated certification agency to analyze the area’s water system, wind, soil and other natural elements, resulting in the first 100% organic designation
for a Korean tea plantation in all three categories of crop production,
post-harvest handling and organic products.
Annual certification inspections ensure
that the highest levels of organic standards are maintained.
Tea of Teas, green tea, underwent testing for residual pesticides
in a test established by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency
using 252 testing criteria in 2004 and 268 criteria in 2007,
the results of which certified that zero residual pesticides or
heavy metals were found in our completely pure organic green tea.
Insisting on making the perfect Tea of Teas.
First, our tea leaves are picked by hand.
We make sure that all of leaves are harvested by hand to ensure pollutants
and contaminants are not left on the leaves.
This is not the fastest or the highest-yielding method,
but this is our commitment to making the world’s finest “Tea of Teas”
Second, we ensure that the leaves are completely clean.
The hand-picked tea leaves are washed with water to remove dust and contaminants.
Allowed to remain in the most natural states to retain a deep aroma and rich flavor,
our green tea is the essence of purity that protects our health and wellness.
