About SereniTEA Infusions
SereniTEA Infusions was formed out of the desire of two young people wanting to launch a product that would promote peace and health both in the way it was sold and inherently in the product itself. Being the most widely consumed beverage in the world, and known for its numerous health benefits, they saw tea as an excellent way for people to relax, as well as support sustainable growth in underdeveloped communities where most tea is sourced from.
“SereniTEA is not just a name, but a word that encompasses everything that our products offers.”
Currently, our teas are sourced from the Darjeeling and Assam regions of India. They are all Organic certified and mostly Fairtrade (we are working hard on getting Fairtrade certification on all our teas). In the future, we hope to bring a variety of teas from all around the world, as well as set up a donation scheme to support development in regions where are teas are sourced from.
About Organic Tea
Most tea leaves go unwashed when they are harvested, dried and processed, and contain chemical residue and pesticides used on the plants. With an organic process, the tea is grown free of chemicals, antibiotics, synthetic hormones or genetic modifications. It is minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation in order to maintain the integrity of the food, preserve ecological harmony and promote biodiversity. Hence it is health for you as well as for the environment!
All our organic teas are sourced from producers that adhere to an organic method of cultivation that is certified by the IMO Institute for Marketecology. This IMO certification has approval in over 90 countries, including European, American and Japanese standards. For further information please visit http://www.imo.ch, or contact us with any questions you may have.
Fairtrade is an organised social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries and promote sustainability. Our tea producer’s workforce is given statutory benefits such as free housing, rationed food, medical services and maternity benefits. In addition the tea gardens have schools for workers’ children and places of worship for various religious communities. By giving many families the security of a regular income, our tea producers have helped raise the socio-economic standards of the local population.
Most of our teas are certified Fairtrade and meet global standards (we are working hard to get all our teas certified!). For further information please visit http://www.fairtrade.com.au, or contact us with any questions you may have.
