Organic Tea Gets Consumers’ Tick for Health, Environment and Sustainability
The demand for organic products has increased dramatically according to a biennial report from organic certifying group Australian Organic, with the organic industry now valued at $1.72 billion, and growing at over 15% per year. As such, Australia's thirst for organic tea is being quenched by a number of tea packers and producers, with multi award-winning Madura Tea a forerunning favourite.Pioneers of one the earliest sustainable tea plantations in Australia, Madura Tea has always been driven by a vision to deliver quality blends with the purest taste, while nurturing the ecosystem that sustains them. Combining the shifting and evolving trends within the tea industry with consumer enthusiasm for organically-produced products, Madura Tea has sourced and added organic black tea, organic green tea, and organic English Breakfast tea to their repertoire of twenty quality blends at the start of 2015.
Why drink Organic Tea?
While all of Madura's tea is pure, free of contaminants and sustainably grown, or sourced from likeminded estates, research indicates that consumers opt to consume organic tea based on a number of personal or lifestyle factors.While many organic shoppers cite consuming products that are farmed and produced chemical, pesticide, and additive-free, as a natural choice, interestingly the majority list their motivation as aligning more with their personal and ethical values, and an increased awareness of health, community and planetary wellbeing.So is organic tea really better for you, and should you choose organic over non organic tea? With both delivering the same number of health benefits - including antioxidants and properties to aid fat burning, lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of stroke, and enhance the immune system – putting it simply, tea, in all its forms, equals wellbeing. Madura Tea understands the choice to drink organic tea is highly individual, and offer the following advice to all tea lovers: know your farmer. Is the plantation your tea is sourced from sustainable, and are the estates accredited, both organically and non-organically?
