Why you should avoid none-organic loose teas
In most none-organic teas there are a lot of nasty chemicals that you should consider avoiding. Normaly, those things include chemical fertilizer, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
You will notice most of those words end in a nasty suffix, -icides.
ldoceonline.com defines the -icide suffix as the following:
-icide /ɪsaɪd/ (also -cide) suffix [in nouns] someone or something that kills a particular person or thing, or the act of killing insecticide (=chemical substance for killing insects) suicide (=the act of killing yourself)https://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/icide
Now does that sound like something you want to put inside your body? No of course not! That’s why you should always choose organic loose teas rather than none-organic. It’s just plain the smart thing to do. Honestly.
Like seriously, Don’t fight this, Embrace it. That stuff is seriously bad for you!
Identifying truly organic teas vs none-organic
Sometimes knowing if a tea is organic can be a bit difficult. This is especially true for loose style tea as it often comes in unbranded packaging or even just a clear plastic bag. Here are a few tips to consider when attempting to figure it out.
If the tea has packaging – check to see if it has any stickers or some other form of disclosure that it’s organic grade and grown with out the use of such -icides we spoke about earlier. Also look for the anti-gmo label as it’s also a good indicator.
It shouldn’t be hard to find, these companies tend to want to really shove it in your face that it’s organic and will print it in big bold letter to make sure you see it!
What if it’s not branded?
If you’ve just got a baggy of loose leaf tea with no clear packaging or other indicators, Than the first thing you need too do is think about where you got it. Did you buy it in the market? Did you buy it online?
You may be able to easily track back the company who made it by where you bought it. Especially if it was a dedicated tea store or grocery store. When it comes you loose leaf organic tea your already ahead of the curb with thinking it’s probably organic, or at least much more healthy than it’s teabag cousin.
