Online organic tea merchants?

  • 7

Anyone know of a reputable website where one can order organic, fair trade teas (including green tea). TIA!

  1. Most great tea is not Certified Organic. Teance is about as ethically and environmentally sound as tea gets. All their tea comes from small farmers who are paid a fair price. Their tea is incredible as well.

    1. Thanks for the reply Morton. I was thinking that this would make a nice holiday gift for a friend who adheres strictly to organic and fair trade products.

        Read the FAQs on the Teance web site:

        The man is insane when it comes to tea. But his obsession is reflected in the quality of his products. I will never look at bagged teas in the same way again.

      2. Republic of Tea has a catalog that I get and also, no doubt, a website. Some of their teas are fair trade and some are organic.

        1. try frontier for organic fair trade tea
          love their irish breakfast, spearment, indian green, indian white, gunpowder. . . they also have org fair trade cocoa, & a grip of organic & conventional bulk spices. stuff is fresh, prices reasonable

            1. Tao of Tea here in Portland is Fair Trade Certified & carries many organic green teas!

              I've not ordered from their site, but have been to their shops & teahouses.
