If you are interested in organic teas (plus EU regulated labour), there are a couple tea plantations in Portugal (Azores, more concretely in São Miguel island) which I think never ever seen pesticides or herbicides (I have been to the island and plantation, and believe it)

I like the Orange Pekoe and the green tea.

Oh, that’s great – I loved the tea you used as the basis for the chai, and that’s a nice green tea too! Going to a tea plantation is my new before-I-die dream. :)

Thanks for adding Gorreana to this thread. (The photos on their website look very appealing.)

The Tao of Tea does a lot of organic teas, and seem to be committed to helping small tea farmers too: http://www.taooftea.com/aboutus.php?num=52. They have nice tins as well!
