Putting a stamp on the truth: Tea Campaign's certification
All Tea Campaign's teas are authentic and certified. Organic certifications provide written guarantees to consumers that our teas are sourced from responsible farmers who practised organic farming standards.
What you need to know about our certification and partners Tea Board India Tea Board India
is the statutory body of the Central Government under the Ministry of Commerce. The Board has the sole control over the growing and exporting of all teas in India, including Darjeeling.
As the ‘champagne of teas’, Darjeeling Tea is a highly desirable product worldwide. This has resulted in some unscrupulous producers selling blends as ‘Darjeeling Tea’. To protect the tea, the Tea Board has developed the Darjeeling name and logo as proof of authenticity. Euro Leaf
The distinctive green stylised leaf of the European flag
indicates that a product is legally organic because it has conformed to strict European standards for organic farming. The standards not only cover production and processing but also control and labelling of organic products.
The use of the logo comes with strict controls including checks at every stage of the organic chain. All stakeholders (farmer, processor, trader, importer or exporter) are checked at least once a year as part of the strict EU standards. German bio leaf – ‘Bio-Siegel’
The European Union is the world’s largest producer and consumer of organic products and Germany is a key player in the region.
The German ministry of agriculture, nutrition, and consumer protection coordinates and regulates organic standards by issuing a label dubbed as ‘Bio-Siegel’
. To qualify, no less than 95% of the product’s ingredients of agricultural origins must originate from organic farms. Naturland Naturland Association for Organic Agriculture
