Concerned customers as well as we ourselves ask if Darjeeling tea is in danger of getting contaminated by radioactivity. Even though at this point one can only speculate on the effects of the Japanese nuclear catastrophy, for Darjeeling there seems to be an all-clear. Darjeeling is situated in the norheast of India, sheltered by the Himalayas and 5.000 km away from Japan.
As always we will analyse our teas for residues of pesticides. Furthermore for the harvest of 2011 we will spot-check samples for radioactive substances. Of course we will share the results with you. You will find them on our internet site under "Traceability".
