Organic Status and Farming Practices
At Agulhas Honeybush Tea we have farmed using organic farming practices for many years, but only received our organic status and certificate in 2015. This certification ensures that we can plant, process and sell our tea as 100% organic to national and international markets.
It also requires us to not use chemicals for fertilization, weeds, insects or any disease control measures. Our organic certification responsibility does not end there. We try to farm as close to nature as possible with sustainable farming practices always being our priority when expanding our tea fields.
