At Alowishus, we love to keep things local where we can. And if we can’t get a quality local product, like our organic tea, we want to ensure that our products are ethically sourced and support the local community where they are grown and produced.
Our premium quality organic tea is not only Fairtrade, but organically grown as well. This ensures that the people who work so hard to create this great product and the environment in which it is grown are well looked after.
Organic Tea – Difference you can taste
Most tea leaves go unwashed when they are harvested, dried and processed, and contain chemical residue and pesticides used on the plants. With an organic tea process, it is grown free of chemicals, antibiotics, synthetic hormones or genetic modifications. It is minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation in order to maintain the integrity of the food, preserve ecological harmony and promote biodiversity. Hence, it is health for you as well as for the environment.
Fairtrade is an organised social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries and promote sustainability. Our organic tea producer’s workforce is given statutory benefits such as free housing, rationed food, medical services and maternity benefits. In addition the tea gardens have schools for workers’ children and places of worship for various religious communities. By giving many families the security of a regular income, our organic tea producers have helped raise the socio-economic standards of the local population.
Our organic tea is sourced from producers that adhere to an organic method of cultivation that is certified by the IMO Institute for Marketecology. This IMO certification has approval in over 90 countries, including European, American and Japanese standards.
