Organic teas are the ones that are grown in tea estates with absolutely no chemical inputs or artificial fertilizers. Nutrition for the tea bushes is provided by the use of Vermiculture and large scale application of compost and oil cakes. All pest and disease control is carried out by purely natural methods of cultivation. Compost, neem cake and castor cake are dug into trenches to enhance the soil. In addition, neem acts as a natural insect repellent. All of our organic teas are certified by the USDA to meet the rigorous standards set by its National Organic Program (NOP). They utilize a hundred Accredited Certifying Agents (ACAs) to implement testing programs, both domestic and international. The soil in the applicant estates is carefully inspected throughout the year by the ACAs. A new estate receives a certificate that says organic in transit for the first three years of its conversion. After the three-year period a regular organic certification is issued. Certificates are reissued every year after inspections.
