Certified Organic Cultivation

Due to the growing demand, the market offers a wide variety of organically produced teas, meaning that no pesticides or insecticides may be used in their cultivation. Since January 1, 2009, the EU regulation (EC) No 834/2007 and the commision regulation (EC) No 889/2008 form a uniform basis of the cultivation, processing, storing, labeling and selling of organically produced foods. This regulation states that, for example, all ingredients used in organic teas must be of organic origin and that only natural fl avors may be used.
Official agreements of the USDA and the European Commission have acknowledged compatibility of each others organic certifications (USDA & EU organic system). The US now allows agricultural products to be sold, labeled, or represented as organically produced, including by display of the USDA organic seal as well as the EU organic logo. New organic label: Since July 1, 2012, the new EU organic label showing the form of a “EU leaf” is mandatory on all packaging of organic products within the EU.
