We are honored to be the first U.S. tea company to carry Elephant Friendly™ certified tea. What does this mean? Elephants in Assam get hurt and die due to lack of safe habitat corridors and human interactions. Tenzing, the tea farmer we are working with, committed to growing tea organically and in an ecologically sound manner. His tea farm is free of electric fences, pesticides, and deep ditches and habitat corridors provide safe passage for elephants. Like many organic tea farms, his is completely alive with bugs, birds, elephants, and rich tasting tea.
