Our Ethics

Sourcing

As an individual, I strive to help small-to-mid-size tea farmers who care about the ecosystem of tea plantation and the ethics of their business. It is not easy to find them because they are not familiar with social media and don’t normally supply to small tea brands. What they are seeking is the ultimate quality of their works.

Where are the tea farmers?

I was Introduced by friends and word-of-mouth, but bonding the relationships is not always easy, like finding someone you click with. Transparency is important.
After visiting their tea garden and manufacture site, that’s why in Clarity Taiwan Tea we have a team of experts and tea enthusiasts.

“We don’t want our land to suffer from the consequences of earning quick money. Our tea farm is the home of insects and the wild grass is the corps.”

Feel guilt-free

Believe or not, we are creating 170 million teabags every day, most of them contain non-biodegradable materials and cause micro-plastic ocean pollution.

PLA is a plant-based plastic (yes, still plastics) that is being used in many “plastic-free” tea brands, but it is degradable not always 100% biodegradable. Even the answer is yes, thousands of millions “micro-plastics” are flowing into the ocean.

So what is the solution for our tea drinkers? I guess is ditch the teabags and start drinking “loose leaf tea”.
