At Pure Leaf, we believe the most delicious tea is real tea, done right and sustainably sourced. We work with the Rainforest Alliance, an international nonprofit, to source teas from estates that promote sustainable practices. The Rainforest Alliance works with forward-thinking farmers to conserve natural resources and ensure the long-term economic health of crops and communities. In order for an estate to become Rainforest Alliance Certified ™, it must meet rigorous standards designed to monitor good agricultural practices, protect ecosystems, safeguard the well-being of local communities and improve productivity. We are proud to say this tea is sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ estates who share our beliefs to create sustainable farming systems around environmental protection, social equity and economic viability.
