We source all our tea from the independent tea farmers who work for their own family tea business for decades in Taiwan. Clarity, as their front face outside of Taiwan, we only select the teas which are not only tasty but also receive the national food safety certifications from the Taiwanese government. Most of our suppliers are either organic tea farms or on their transition period (about 7 years).
They only produce a few hundred kilograms of tea every season. Because of the small scale production and the strong domestic demands, it is a burden for them applying for costly organic certifications from international organizations.
The use of pesticides and chemicals directly hurts the farmers themselves before selling to the markets, the pesticide-free movement is already happening. The farmers, their families, and our family are also drinking that tea every day. Transparency and ethics are our core values in Clarity Taiwan Tea.
