Why organic tea?


The Little Tea Cart celebrates the many joys tea brings to our daily lives. We believe tea is like life…  a paradox of both simplicity and complexity .. and as in life– it’s all in how we create each moment that matters. At The Little Tea Cart we seek to celebrate the beauty of artisan teas in every cup,  whether you sip them from your grandmother’s heirloom porcelain or from a travel mug during your morning commute.

Our loose-leaf teas are handcrafted in small batches with 100% organic ingredients from around the world. We use only certified organic ingredients of the finest quality to create our teas.

Why Organic Teas Matter?  Organic teas are without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or herbicides. Non-organic teas are often not rinsed before air-drying leaving pesticides and other residues on the leaves which can end up in your tea cup. Organic tea agriculture supports small tea farmers that produce a higher quality of tea than those of  large mechanized  commercial estates.  Organic tea production also supports rural communities and the biodiversity of local ecosystems.  Our suppliers work directly with small tea and spice farms in China, India, Japan, and Sri Lanka. Our dried organic fruits for our tisanes are from certified organic farms in New York State and the United States.

Why go through all this trouble? Because a cup of tea is a special moment that connects us to the world … from the rains of the Blue Hills of Assam right to your teacup.  And after all shouldn’t your tea be just as special as you are?
