Rainforest Alliance Certified Teas

The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land use practices, business practices and consumer behavior. Rainforest Alliance Certified farms have reduced environmental footprints, are good neighbors to human and wild communities and are often integral parts of regional conservation initiatives.

Under the auspices of the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN), an international coalition of leading conservation groups, the Rainforest Alliance works with farmers to ensure compliance with the SAN standards for protecting wildlife, wild lands, workers' rights and local communities. Farms that meet these rigorous standards are awarded the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal.

Kopius Teas ( purchase tea from three plantations that produce Rainforest Alliance certified teas. These include Korakundah, Chamraj, and Allada. We ask that you support the Rainforest Alliance by purchasing these certified teas or asking your local tea merchant to offer these products.
