From Farm to Cup: Our Ethical Sourcing Practices


Our journey of sustainability begins with how we source our tea. We proudly partner with small, family-owned farms in India, China, and Japan, where environmentally-friendly farming is the norm. These practices protect soil health, conserve water, and minimize synthetic pesticides and herbicides. We also ensure that our tea leaves are hand-picked, guaranteeing top-quality while supporting fair trade practices.



Eco-Conscious Packaging: Reducing Our Carbon Footprint


After sourcing our tea, we focus on eco-friendly packaging. Our English Breakfast tea is encased in biodegradable pyramid sachets made from plant-based materials. This means they can be composted, returning to the earth without harm, unlike conventional plastic tea bags.



Supporting the Planet: Our Carbon Offset and Conservation Efforts


 Our environmental responsibility extends beyond sourcing and packaging. We're actively involved in carbon offset programs and collaborate with organizations like the Woodland Trust. This UK-based charity helps us contribute to planting millions of trees and safeguarding woodland areas.


Educating and Inspiring: Our Role in Promoting Sustainability


At Genuine Tea, we believe in transparency and educating our customers. On our website, we share detailed information about our ethical sourcing, certifications, and efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. Through our blog, we tell stories of our partnerships with farmers and conservation organizations, offering insights on how to embrace a sustainable lifestyle.
