Tea Quality & Testing
The quality and safety of all our tea offerings is our mandate, to ensure that you enjoy only the highest quality and safest teas. All of our teas are naturally produced and undergo stringent quality assurance testing for pesticides and microbial contamination from the garden level to the post-harvest facilities, and through the final production processes and handling.
Organic Tea Forté offers both conventional and organic teas, tea blends, and herbal tisanes to our consumers. All of our teas are rigorously tested for food safety and comply with US and EU regulations. The EU has stricter pesticide standards than the US and it also has test laboratories that detect pesticides at lower levels than US labs. The only way to ensure that teas are pesticide free, whether Camelia sinensis or herbal, is to buy certified organic teas or tisanes. All of Tea Forté organic teas meet both the US and EU standards.
Tea Forté conventional blends, while not organic, undergo strict quality procedures. Washing/cleaning/sorting is one of the early processes for raw agricultural products. Each ingredient (tea, herbs, dried fruits, flowers, spices and other plant ingredients have to be processed and tested according to good manufacturing practices before blending and packing to ensure the cleanliness and safety of the product. All tea ingredients are tested before blending and packaging. All quality, food safety and toxicological safety are ensured in compliance with EU and US pesticide regulations.
Flavors Tea Forté offers a wide selection of both organic and conventional teas and herbal tisanes with or without flavoring. We use natural flavoring in some of our blends to create a unique taste experience. Flavored teas, both conventional and organic, are safe, clean and of as high a quality as unflavored teas. Tea Forté flavored teas are free from allergens and GMOs.
GMOs All of Tea Forté products are GMO free. This includes the material for our tea infuser, the ingredients in the teas and the natural flavors.
Packaging Tea Forté pyramid infusers are made from FDA approved, food safe, recyclable PET silken mesh fibers and hand-crafted into pyramid shape without the use of any chemicals or adhesives. Our pyramid is not made from PLA (poly lactic acid), a derivative of corn. Additionally our infuser material does not contain gluten, GMOs, corn nor any of the eight FDA recognized allergens (tree nuts, peanuts, milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, wheat or soybeans). Our infuser material has been tested by an accredited third party independent lab for food safety. Tea Forté’s signature pyramid is inert (does not react with boiling water), does not contain heat sealing adhesives and is designed to allow free flow of water for maximum tea infusion.
Tea does not have an expiration date, but it can start to lose freshness over time. At Tea Forté we label all of our products with a "best by" date to ensure that you experience the best we have to offer.
We do recommend storing your tea in a dry, cool, dark space. Tea needs to be kept away from heat, light, air, and moisture to ensure its freshness. Do not store your teas in the freezer or refrigerator.
