We're proud to source our Assam Tea from Mana Organics – based in Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
The tea company, led by fourth-generation tea grower, Avantika Jalan, was started because Jalan wanted her family’s tea gardens to be models of sustainability for the industry. “We are not just high-quality, ethical, organic teas,” explains Jalan. “We are high-quality, ethical, sustainable teas, as well.”
Mana Organics makes sure their farming is closed loop where "all of their organic inputs are generated from waste or produced within their estate."
A more sustainable tea results in a bold, malty assam tea that you can taste in our distinctive Bala Chai blends.
