Hand-Plucking Tea LeavesAll of our tea leaves are hand-plucked in order to:
- Ensure premium tea quality
- Eliminate carbon emissions from mechanized harvesters
- Monitor and remove any imperfect leaves, as well as some insects and pests.
We maintain our soils by using grass varieties in our fields to control erosion.
Limited-use of pesticides
We encourage our growers not to use pesticides, which helps to sustain the ecological balance of the tea fields.
The trees planted in the fields have become natural habitats for various types of birds around the area.
We use natural forms of pest control such as planting certain kinds of grass that act as a natural deterrent to any pests.
We constantly improve energy efficiency in our processing plants to reduce carbon emissions.
