DavidsTea is powered by tea-obsessed
friends who want to share the love.
Tea for everyone
Tea-obsessed since 2008, DavidsTea exists purely for tea perfection. We’re on the ground worldwide in search of well-crafted, single-origin loose leaf teas to share with our North American community. We’re pushing limits in new tea frontiers with our blends. We want to it to be as easy as possible to discover, explore and feel better through tea.
Doing business right
We have friends and partners across the planet, including
many family-owned tea gardens.
Going organic is a great way to support our planet, and DavidsTea is home to one of the largest organic tea collections in North America. So why aren't we 100% Organic? Simply put, many of the ingredients we love, such as willow bark, just aren't available as Certified Organic in the quality and quantities we need. Getting Organic Certification is a rigorous process, and not all farms have the resources or capacity to do it. At the same time, purchasing Organic helps encourage farmers to make the transition to more eco-friendly practices. It's a long process with many rigorous steps, but we're dedicated to making it happen.
Right now, 30% of our tea collection is Organic. We want to increase this to 50% organic by 2023.
Fair Trade CertifiedTM
Fair is fair. But this logo represents more than fair wages & ethical treatment for farmers. Our products marked Fair Trade Certified™ contribute to a Community Development Fund – putting money directly into the hands of tea and farming communities so they can use it democratically on whatever improvements they see fit.
Right now, 4% of our teas are Fair Trade. We want to increase this to 6% by 2022.
This lovely non-profit works with tea gardens to create conditions where humans and endangered elephants can live (and grow) safely together. It's about promoting safer, more sustainable farming practices while shielding elephants from habitat change.
Today, 2% of our teas are Elephant Approved; we want to increase this to 3% by 2022.
Conflict & cruelty-free ingredients
We're proud to share that 87% of our collection is vegan! When crafting unique, complex blends, it can be challenging to source vegan-friendly ingredients. We obsessively seek out alternatives, like milk-free chocolate, to keep our rich palette of flavours exciting and accessible to everybody.
