Catspring Yaupon Cardamon Rose Tea Latte
The (in)credible science
Organic tea production, like organic production in general, is climate-smart. Studies find that when organic practices are used, soil and roots in organic tea orchards sequester more carbon. This was an especially strong outcome of long-term organic management of more than 10 years, where gaps in yield also decreased. This outcome is supported by an ever-growing body of literature that shows organic can produce comparable yields to conventional, especially in the long term. According to a 2014 study, in cultures where green and black teas are consumed daily, the practice of overboiling tea leaves should be avoided to help reduce the transfer of soluble and non-soluble contaminants, such as pesticide residues and other impurities in dried tea leaves. Be sure to not over boil your tea leaves!
