From Tea Campaign

The Teekampagne (or, in English, "Tea Campaign") was founded in Berlin, Germany, in 1985. From its humble beginnings in a small basement apartment for a small rent at the Free University of Berlin, the Teekampagne grew to the world`s largest importer of genuine organic Darjeeling tea. The Tea Campaign Canada is part of the steadily growing Teekampagne-network, currently with its headquarter in Germany, representations in USA, Canada and New Zealand and regular customers in many European countries like Spain, France, the Netherlands and other countries.

Healthy Environment, Healthy Tea, Healthy People!

Our "parent" company, the Teekampagne, has long invested in the environmental health of Darjeeling, the district in India where our tea comes from. All teas sold within the Teekampagne-network are not only organically produced and certified but also regularly tested for 486 (!) potential, in the tea industry widely used chemical residues, from herbicides to pesticides and fungicides (which may be transported by wind from neighbouring, non-certified tea-gardens). The results of these tests are printed on each tea package

1.5 tsp in 300mL water @95C, steeped five minutes.

An excellent basic Darjeeling. Everything that’s good about Darjeeling — the clean astringence, the tending towards almost a green tea in body and taste, and that glorious muscatel — is all here. This is a blend from one grand, Pussimbing. I find it benefits from a slightly longer steep than I usually go for with a black tea, five minutes versus four or four and a half, and with the lower water temp of 95 vs 100. The price is more than reasonable — a bargain, I’d argue, with 250 grams costing only $18.00 — the leaf organic and tested for hundreds of different residues, and, best of all, Tea Campaign is committed to improving the lives of tea workers.
