This green tea from 9teas is flavoured with jasmine blossom immediately after harvesting. The fresh jasmine blossom is spread over the dried tea leaves. This process is repeated with new jasmine blossom until the desired flavour is achieved.
The tea is a loose leaf tea. Because of the loose tea leaves, your cup of tea has more flavour and at the same time you produce less waste.
The quality of the working conditions on the tea plantations is just as important to 9teas as the quality of the tea. Fair wages, a safe working place, normal working hours and a ban on child labour are unfortunately not always enforced in the tea industry. That is why 9teas buys its teas through a cooperative that monitors the working conditions on site so that they can assure fair working conditions for the employees. The cooperative is Fairtrade, UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certified, but does not by definition exclude farmers without, for example, a Fairtrade certificate. The reason for this is that only a small percentage of the farmers is able to afford the costs for such a certificate while they do grow their tea sustainably.
The packaging is completely recyclable and plastic-free! The tea comes in a glass jar with an aluminium lid, both materials are recyclable. In addition, the labels consist of natural materials that are extracted from renewable sources as much as possible. The labels are fully industrial compostable and can therefore be put in the glass container together with the jar! Even more fun than recycling the jars is to give them a second life by reusing them as food cans or for a candle or a plant.
