we continue to actively incorporate Fair Trade ingredients into as many products as we can because we've seen, first-hand, the long-term benefits on the developing communities we have trade relationships with.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 18, 2007 -
Choice Organic Teas, the leading exclusively organic tea company in the United States, adds a new caffeine-free herb tea to their Original Line. Organic Lemon Lavender Mint Herb Tea features accents of sun-blessed lavender grown on a coastal island in the Pacific Northwest.
This sophisticated blend combines these blossoms with layers of mellow lemon and crisp Fair Trade Certified™ spearmint for a fresh yet soft-tasting herbal tea that is an ideal choice for a calming, caffeine-free cup. Lemon Lavender Mint Herb Tea is Fair Trade Certified, guaranteeing fair wages, respectable living and working conditions, and a worker-managed premium. This premium, paid by Fair Trade registered importers like Choice Organic Teas, empowers workers to improve their own lives. This tea is available in a 16-tea bag box and will be sold at natural foods retailers and select mass-market stores around the country.
Choice Organic Teas' introduction of this new tea demonstrates their ongoing dedication to Fair Trade and their commitment to bettering the lives of their producers. Blake Rankin, founder and president of Choice Organic Teas, explains that, "we continue to actively incorporate Fair Trade ingredients into as many products as we can because we've seen, first-hand, the long-term benefits on the developing communities we have trade relationships with."
Additionally, this new tea uses their latest tea bag innovation, replacing the staples with the elegant simplicity of knotted string. In order to bring customers the purest tea product in the world, packaged for convenience with materials causing the least impact on the environment, Choice Organic Teas chooses to make tea bags without glue or heat-sealed polyfilaments. Choice Organic Teas' focus on organic agriculture, socially-responsible sourcing, and truly outstanding flavor selection culminates in a perfectly balanced tea.
