Our promise to our customers to use only the finest ingredients led us to source our tea leaves from the Island of Java, Indonesia, hence the name Tejava® (Tea from Java). We place great value on our relationship with the farmers and community of Java. To officially recognize the importance of this relationship, we can now say Tejava uses tea leaves from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal lets customers know that the tea used in Tejava is sustainably grown to benefit farm families, wildlife, and the environment. Rainforest Alliance certification promotes sustainable farm management and incorporates a range of environmental, social, and economic standards, including water and soil conservation, wildlife protection, housing and healthcare for farm workers, and access to education for their children.
