☕ FLAVORINGS...
While I am too small a business to contemplate the huge expense of organic certification, I still adhere to the principles and practices of certification, please read on................
I mostly use CERTIFIED ORGANIC FLAVORS , and at the very least, I use ORGANIC COMPLIANT NATURAL FLAVORS if an organic version is not available, I NEVER use artificial flavors.
ORGANIC TEAS MUST use either CERTIFIED ORGANIC or ORGANIC COMPLIANT NATURAL FLAVORS: The USDA BANS synthetic chemicals in these flavors, no matter how small an amount of the flavors are used. The USDA also REQUIRES these flavors are NOT produced using synthetic solvents and carrier systems or contain any artificial preservatives or GMOs (Section §205.605 of the National Organic Program Regulations). If a natural flavor in an organic product does not conform to organic certification guidelines, then the food product cannot receive organic certification, and should not be considered "organic".

🌎 EARTH FRIENDLY can be stylish.....
At Amitea Organics, it is important that we leave as small a footprint as possible on our beautiful planet. We use the following practices.

🌎 NO PLASTIC containers, bags or tacky zip bags.
🌎 We use compostable cellulose bags, made in England instead.
🌎 We use USA made recycled / and recyclable kraft outer boxes for our teas.
🌎 We reuse packaging and shipping boxes where possible (which may include plastic air bags, rather than send them to the landfill ).
🌎 We use unbleached, biodegradable paper tea filters made from sustainably harvested forests in CANADA or made in GERMANY.
🌎 Our loose tea samplers and tea bagged favors or advent calendar tea bags are all placed inside earth friendly, USA Made, waxed glassine bags instead of mylar (plastic), or plasticized "foils".
🌎 The tissue paper we use for packing is made in the USA of recycled paper.
We are striving to improve our packaging and it will evolve as new technologies become available.

🤧 ALLERGIES
My teas are blended in a licenced and inspected (Dept. of Agriculture) kitchen. I also process eggs, wheat, tree nuts and other possible allergens and so my kitchen is not an allergen free environment, neither can it be considered a gluten free facility.

About

Quality Organic Teas and Herbal Infusions, Hand Blended in Small Batches

Amitea was born out of necessity!
After moving to the USA from England, some years ago, I found it impossible to find a good quality, well brewed cup of tea, something available on any given high street in England.
So....I opened a tea room in New York in 2005 to share the love of tea with the locals, many of whom were from Britain and also missed a "proper cup of tea".

While it was a fun and educational time, I quickly realized it was the TEA BLENDING that interested me the most, and so Amitea was born.
Amitea was named because, to me, tea reflects friendship (the French word for friend is Ami). It is also a play on the word Amity which means peaceful, harmonious relations particularly amongst nations). What better way to promote world peace than over a cup of tea.

In 2015 Amitea became Amitea Organics as I pulled away from the main stream and began blending only organic versions of my teas and herbal blends. It is a reflection of my belief that life is too short to drink bad tea. Tea is a pause in the day, a moment in time, to be savored and enjoyed. While in this state of TEA BLISS, why would you infuse your soul with anything but the best?

I hand blend my teas and herbal blends from scratch, using recipes I have perfected over the years. I source only the finest organic teas and ingredients from around the world in order to create the finest quality teas and herbals infusion blends that I can.
My home kitchen is fully licensed and inspected by NC Dept. of Agriculture, and anyone selling food products on etsy should be proud to offer a copy of their license when asked.
If they refuse, think twice about buying...(think pet hair!). Ask me, I'll mail you a copy of mine!

It is my mission to help people recognize and learn the difference in quality between the wholesome organic loose leaf teas, spices, fruits and flowers used in my teas, compared to mass produced tea bags containing little more than dust. It's easy to see what you are drinking if you can see the leaf, the pieces of fruit, flowers and spices. The taste difference amazes people who are trying loose leaf teas for the first time......mission accomplished!

Namaste
