Our business ethic is one of honesty and trust, where the relationship and satisfaction of both our customers and our suppliers is our guiding principle. Our regular trips allow us to not just find the best teas, but also visit our supplier's farms to personally verify their growing and production methods and techniques.
In order to guarantee the freshness and quality of the tea we sell, TeaVivre only buys tea directly from the tea producers who have a proven track record in producing top quality teas using organic, traditional methods.
In the last few years, China's tea producers – and drinkers – have realized the taste, quality, health and environmental benefits of producing tea organically and so have introduced organic production on a large scale. As a result TeaVivre offers you a range of organic teas from several different provinces in China. We thoroughly check to make sure that our organic teas have been verified as organic by recognized independent international organizations. To insure that our teas are good for both your health and for the environment, we consider pesticide problems as the foremost criterion of selecting a tea, and all our teas that meet the European low pesticide residues standard are analyzed with Quality Safety Testing Reports.
Our organic teas all adhere to at least one of the following international organic regulations:
France and Europe: EU Regulation (EC)
United States: US FDA Regulation NOP (National Organic Program).
Japan: JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standard).
