Choice Organic Teas made its debut in 1989 as the first exclusively organic tea company in the United States. As North America’s #1 selling organic tea line, Choice Organic Teas has promoted the growth and development of organic agriculture in tea estates worldwide and offers more than seventy-five varieties of teas and herbal infusions available in tea bags, tea pyramids, and loose leaf. In 2000, Choice Organic Teas became the first tea crafter in the United States to offer Fair Trade Certified™ tea and in 2010, it became the first tea company to be Non-GMO Verified. Its commitment to earth-friendly packaging won it a Responsible Packaging Award in 2011. Choice Organic Teas is one of the few tea companies that packages its own tea, which give it direct control over quality, food safety, and costs. And, since it is all packaged in the United States, it contributes to U.S. jobs.
