Tetulia, premium hand-picked organic teas from Bangladesh, announces USDA NOP Organic Certification. On February 28, 2008, the garden where Tetulia teas come from – Kazi & Kazi Tea Estate Ltd (KKTE) – made history by becoming the first, and only, tea garden in Bangladesh to be certified organic.
In 2000, KKTE broke the barrier by establishing a tea garden on land that previously lain fallow using innovative organic and nature-friendly farming methods. The garden uses only natural pest and weed controls, employs only renewable resources and maintains the soil’s fertility. These practices demonstrate the garden’s commitment to protecting both human health and wildlife.
Tetulia teas are exceptional, with the finest taste and liquor. Tetulia boasts eight varieties, ranging from Blacks to Greens to Whites and Ayurvedic blends; available in biodegradable silken pyramid bags and loose leaf. Grown in an exquisite part of the world, the teas taste fresh, clean and smooth, characterized by a full body and light finish.
Tetulia will be launching in the United States at the 2008 World Tea Expo on May 30 and previewing at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim. The premium organic teas will be available through an online store, natural food stores, and premium tea shops.
