From $13.00

Browse shop > Organic > Organic Drinks & Food

A delicate and refreshing single-origin Organic and Fairtrade certified green tea from the Uva highlands of Sri Lanka. Biodynamically grown on Stassen's famed high country Idulgashinna plantation, where the cool ripening conditions create teas of exceptionally refined quality.

Green tea is a "true" tea (i.e., Camellia sinensis) that has undergone minimal oxidation during processing. The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times, using it to treat everything from headaches to depression. Today, scientific research is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking this delicious brew.

In 1987 the Idulgashinna Organic Bio Tea Estate became the first certified organic tea garden in the world, and Tradewinds began importing this unique tea, providing additional support to the Idulgashinna social development project when it began in 1992.

The social development program at Idulgashinna continues to involve workers in all aspects of the management of the estate. This is raising the standard of living and improving education and health care. It is a radical departure from conditions on most tea estates, where there is a big gap between the management and workers, and where workers live in very basic conditions with poor access to education and health care.
